FIFA has committed to developing football in Liberia in addition to the Forward 3.0 Program.
The commitment was made in Paris, France, where Liberia Football Association (LFA) President Mustapha Raji and general-secretary Kollie A. Dorko (Atty.) are currently attending a FIFA tactical planning workshop to prepare African members for the next cycle of the FIFA Forward 3.0 Program.
According to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, African football is set to embark on a new era with greater investment in football development and Liberia is one of the beneficiaries.
A team of FIFA experts will arrive in Liberia on 15 February to support the training of women’s football clubs in the area of club licensing.
Other opportunities were gained during the workshop through networking with member associations and some club officials would benefit from external training opportunities.
The LFA launched a talent development scheme in December 2022 with the additional support of US$50,000 from FIFA.
Through its Forward 3.0 Program, FIFA plans to give football development initiatives around the world more funding and support than ever before.
The goal of the football development program is to provide each member association and the six confederations with comprehensive, individually-tailored support for the development of football.
Additionally, it seeks to advance Infantino’s vision for truly globalizing football and raising the level of competition in the sport on a global scale.
