Swis (http://elkosongsijimedia.blogspot.co.id/) – FIFA will create a global club licensing framework by the end of 2016, working with the six regional confederations to improve club football by setting minimum standards in key areas such as stadium safety, fan experience and youth football development.
The FIFA Club Licensing system requires clubs to commit to minimum standards and principles in five key areas:
â€¢ Sporting criteria e.g. clubs must have a youth development programme; clubs must promote fair play
â€¢ Infrastructure criteria e.g. clubs must have safe, comfortable stadiums for fans, families and media; clubs must have training facilities
â€¢ Personnel and administrative criteria e.g. clubs must have qualified coaches and medical staff and professional, well-educated management
â€¢ Legal criteria e.g. clubs must adhere to international statutes; club ownership must be transparent and fair
â€¢ Financial criteria e.g. independent auditing of club finances
UEFA and the AFC have established successful club licensing programmes in Europe and Asia, while FIFA is working with CONCACAF and CAF to develop and implement club licensing systems in those regions. The OFC and CONMEBOL are scheduled to adopt regional standards before the end of 2016. These guidelines will then be tailored to suit the needs of national associations and clubs as part of FIFAâ€™s football development priorities for the 2015-2018 financial cycle.
