The Peruvian Soccer Federation is proud to host the closing of meetings on March 13.

The second round of FIFA Football Executive Summits will be held on March 13, this time in Lima. It will be attended by the president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, as well as the presidents and general secretaries of the member associations CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, and Spain.

“The topics scheduled for the FIFA Executive Summit are: the future of women’s and youth competitions; the FIFA Forward program; transfers; and the international match calendar”, wrote La República today.

About this meeting, Edwin Oviedo, president of the Peruvian Soccer Federation (FPF) said that they were very proud to host this summit, which represents a space to discuss and understand the specific needs of the participating associations.

The Soccer Executive Summits began to take place in 2016 as part of a FIFA reform, to offer a better dialogue and participation of the 211 associations between CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, and Spain, La República explained.

The first round of meetings took place on November 21 in Azerbaiyán and these events will close with the Lima summit.
