The FIFA Foundation: An overview


Established in March 2018, the FIFA Foundation was created as an independent entity with the objectives to help promote positive social change around the world and raise support for the recovery and reconstruction of damaged or destroyed sports infrastructure worldwide.

These social responsibility goals are overseen by the FIFA Foundation Board, which is led by the FIFA President Gianni Infantino and may be supported by FIFA, FIFA Partners and FIFA Legends. The FIFA Foundation’s approach is innovative, modern and digital in its communication and fundraising activities.



The Foundation Board is composed of the FIFA President and at least two further members. The aim will be for the board to represent a wide spectrum of stakeholders with strong expertise in the field of social development as well as an appropriate gender and geographic balance. The initial board is made up of: Gianni Infantino, FIFA President and President of the Foundation Board, Sonia Fulford, FIFA Council member and member of the Foundation Board and Lydia Nsekera, FIFA Council member and member of the Foundation Board.
