“We owe ourselves the need to work in solidarity and to continue to do everything within our reach he support all those fighting against the pandemic,” Infantino said.
“We have already sensitized the public, through many other campaigns. At the same time, FIFA has made a financial contribution for the same course.
“Today we are taking the commitment to organize a world event to raise funds, as soon as the health situation permits – even if we still have to be patient for a few months.”
Through the FIFA Foundation, FIFA aims to carry the impact of football out of just the sporting milieu and make a bigger impact on the wider society.
