FIFA delegation expected in Bamako 18 February

A FIFA delegation is expected in Bamako, Mali, on 18 February for a five-day visit, which is part of the Federation's efforts to support national football federations, PANA learnt Monday from the Malian Football Federation (FEMAFOOT).

In a statement, FEMAFOOT said the FIFA programme in Mali was the result of many decades of planning by FIFA with regards to global football development.

'This is to improve the quality of modern football and its management by providing member federations with high level expertise, solutions and services,' according to FEMAFOOT.

During its visit, the FIFA delegation will meet football stakeholders in Mali with a view to assessing the country's needs for the next two years.
