EQUALITY AND INCLUSION
FIFA has already achieved a great deal in terms of equality and accessibility. With just a few months to go until the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ in Russia, we take a look at what FIFA has done so far. Also, we have some unique features, for instance: last year, Pascal Erlachner became the first elite Swiss referee to come out. We caught up with him for a chat. Young Somali refugee Fatuma tells us how the American organisation Soccer Without Borders changed her life. And former Mali international Frédéric Kanouté graced a number of top European clubs. Today, his goals are more humanitarian.
“The time is ripe for a revolution in football’s transfer system,” says Gianni Infantino in his column. “There must be a limit to the number of players a club is allowed to keep on its books and, most importantly, there must be a salary cap in football.”
