While the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France concluded in style in Lyon on July 7, the tournament will once again take centre stage in Milan on September 22, with the hosting of the first-ever FIFA Football Conference aimed at analysing the women’s showpiece.
Technical directors and women’s national team coaches of FIFA’s member associations (MAs) will be invited to attend, as will all six confederations’ technical directors and heads of women’s football.
The programme will comprise, among other things, an analysis of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France from a technical, tactical and physical point of view, discussions on the main footballing trends in comparison to previous editions of the tournament, and the presentation of the FIFA Technical Study Group report.
“This historic conference will give us a unique opportunity to better understand how women’s football has been developing on the pitch and the main lessons learnt from France. It’s also an ideal platform to share experiences between well-established women’s football powerhouses and those member associations that are starting to invest more and more in the female game,” said Branimir Ujevic, FIFA’s Head of Coaching & Player Development and the Project Lead for the Technical Study Group in France.
The FIFA Football Conference – Analysis of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France will be staged on the eve of The Best FIFA Football Awards 2019, which will crown, among others, The Best FIFA Women’s Player, The Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper and The Best FIFA Women’s Coach.
A similar conference was organised last year in London following the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
