FIFA: FIFA Confirms $150 Million As Support To Member Associations Amid Covid19 Pandemic

Published

on

Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) will release all operational funding due to Member Associations for 2019/2020 in the coming days as a relief package to assist the football community impacted by the novel coronavirus crisis.

This means that a total of around $150 million will be distributed among the 211 national football governing bodies around the world.

“All operational funding” for 2019 and 2020 would be distributed among all the 211 Member Associations in the next couple of days “as the first step of a relief plan to assist the football community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic”, FIFA announced on Friday.

Football around the world has been brought to a halt due to the pandemic, causing significant financial losses for everyone in the footballing world – from executives to players.

Each national governing body will receive $500,000, that FIFA says would normally be delivered “upon fulfillment of specific criteria”, but will release those funds and any “remaining entitlement for 2019 and 2020.”

President Gianni Infantino said; “the first step of a far-reaching financial relief plan we are developing to respond to the emergency across the whole football community.

“It is the duty of FIFA to be there and support the ones that are facing acute needs. This starts by providing immediate financial assistance to our member associations, many of which are experiencing severe financial distress.”

These funds come from the Forward 2.0 program, which was launched in 2016 and providing $1.746 billion in total from 2019 to 2022

FIFA President Gianni Infantino Says Players protesting over George Floyd’s death deserve Applause, not Punishment.

Published

FIFA president Gianni Infantino Says Players protesting over George Floyd’s death deserves applause,  not Punishment. 

This comes at  a time when B. Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho was shown a yellow card for taking off his jersey during a bundesliga match so he could display a T-Shirt emblazoned with “Justice for George Floyd”.

Also, Sancho’s teammate Achraf Hakimi and shalke 04 midfielder Weston Mckennie also carried the same message on their bodies at the weekend.

In reaction to this the German football Federation considers it a disciplinary case due to the fact it was a technical breach of the games laws.

This caused FIFA President Gianni infantino to give his own side of the debate about Bundesliga players protesting during matches against George Floyd, saying they should be applauded and not punish.

Key Points

– Gianni infantino says leagues should use “common sense” when considering rules prohibiting political slogans,  statement or images in games.

– Last week a number of players in Germany’s Bundesliga, including Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, protested the killing of George Floyd.

– The English FA has confirmed it will heed Infantino’s advice when the premier league season resumes on June 17.

Infantino’s comments were published on a statement by FIFA and were set to feature in a clear letter to 211 member Associations.

The statement urges all leagues to apply a ” common sense” and have in consideration the context surrounding the event.

The laws of the game prohibit “any political, religious, or personal slogans statement or images” on equipment. 

The European football governing body UEFA has also joined the course as they will overlook the rule so as to allow all Mr. George Floyd tributes in the continental competitions it oversees.

“Football is a sport which encourages tolerance,  inclusion and justice”, UEFA president Aleksander Cerefin said.

It should be noted that Mister Floyd is black man and former community college basketball player who died after a white police officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes even after he stopped moving and stopped pleading for air.

His death has sparked nationwide protest in the United States and other countries as the call for anti-racism and justice for George Floyd rings in the mouths of all.

شروط الفيفا تهدد عودة الدوري المصري

Published

on

FIFA

أصدر الفيفا نشرة دورية بالإجراءات الواجب توافرها  لعودة النشاط الرياضي

FIFA Measures

جاء في البند الثاني منها
الاشتراطات المطلوبة لعودة النشاط
الفقرة الثانية و الثالثة ..تؤكد ضرورة عمل التحاليل الطبية المتعلقة بكوفيد ١٩ .. كل نادي حسب امكانياته ..

Article 2.d

و في الفقرة الرابعة تحديدا

حدد ان يتم عمل الاختبار للفيروس ٣ مرات لكل من يشارك في التدريبات و المباريات (ليس فقط اللاعبين

– قبل اول تجمع ب ٧٢ ساعة
– قبل أول تمرين مباشرة
– مرة اخرى قبل بداية المنافسات بمعرفة النادي

بهذا الشكل يستحيل ان يتم استكمال الدوري او اي نشاط رياضي في مصر .. قبل ظهور لقاح فعال للفيروس

لأن اغلب الاندية المصرية و بالتالي العربية و الافريقية ليس لها القدرة المالية للتكفل بتلك المصاريف للفريق

و بالتالي فإن استئناف أيا من الدوريات دون تحقيق تلك الاشتراطات الأساسية يعطى الحق في رفضها من الاساس
