During a visit to the Home of FIFA in Zurich, a delegation from the ASEAN Committee in Berne (ACB) thanked FIFA for their fruitful collaboration and expressed their hope that it would help improve football infrastructure and development in its ten member states. ASEAN and FIFA signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in Bangkok in 2019 and members of the ACB were given a comprehensive update on the progress since then.
H.E. Prof. Dr. Muliaman Dharmansyah Hadad, current Chair of the ACB (January-June 2022) and Ambassador of Indonesia, said the ACB was pleased to learn about the achievements of the last two-and-a-half years, which had been especially challenging because of the coronavirus pandemic. “We look forward to maintaining this fruitful collaboration, especially as the eyes of the world will focus on our region in the next year, be that for the G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia, in November 2022 or for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup, also in Indonesia, in 2023,” he said. The ACB’s Heads of Mission also expressed their interest to continue this important collaboration to help to build a strong infrastructure in the ten member states, be that via the women’s football development programme, through the implementation video assistant referees in competitions or other such initiatives. Equally, ASEAN looks forward to having the opportunity to host future FIFA events in the future, especially considering the football-loving populations across the ten member states.
