FIFA’s Bureau of the Council today established a Congress Review Working Group (CRWG) for Football Federation Australia (FFA). This follows the recommendation made by the FIFA Member Associations Committee on 4 December 2017 and the recent visit to Sydney by a joint FIFA-AFC delegation.
The main objective of the CRWG is to propose a new composition of the FFA Congress to ensure a broader and more balanced representation of stakeholders in line with the requirements of the FIFA Statutes, in particular art. 15 (j).
The CRWG will conclude its mandate and submit its proposal to FIFA and the AFC by 31 July 2018. The proposal will be subsequently submitted for adoption to an FFA Special General Meeting by no later than 7 September 2018.
