In 2007, the world’s top soccer stars went through a tough time.
They had been the top earners of their respective sports, yet their personal lives had been marred by substance abuse and a serious personal crisis.
After months of talks, the FIFA Executive Committee agreed to create a new FIFA Player Development Academy (FDIA) to help players get off to a better start.
The academy would provide a framework to help young players overcome adversity and find success.
The FDIA will consist of five main units.
They will work closely with the professional clubs, clubs’ associations, sports doctors, medical specialists and psychologists to create the best solutions to help athletes succeed in their careers.
There are two key components of the FDIA: the National Player Development Program (NPDP), which will be run by FIFA’s National Development Board (NDB), and the Youth Development Program, which will aim to help youth and their families navigate the challenges of life.
To help the world of soccer players succeed, FIFA’s Executive Committee has agreed to fund the development of a new national player development program (NPCP), as well as the development and dissemination of the first-ever FIFA Player Identification (FPI) for all soccer players.
It is hoped that the NPCP will give young players the confidence and confidence to pursue their dreams in the sport of soccer.
But what exactly does the NPCPs mission involve?
FIFA has said that the goal of the NPCS is to provide young players with a “path out of poverty”.
It will be funded by an “independent foundation”, the World Football Foundation (WFF), that will also provide support to clubs and leagues to develop the best possible youth development program.
The NPCS will also be able to support the development, evaluation and monitoring of youth development projects.
The first phase of the IOCP, which is now in its third year, will be focused on building the FFI to identify and assess young athletes’ progress in the sporting field, including on the FIFA World Cup.
The second phase of this plan will focus on the development program of the National Soccer Development Programme (NSDP), a project that will aim “to increase the participation of young people in the football field by helping them achieve their potential.”
The third phase of FFI will focus “on the training and development of youth in sports of football” through the FIFA Development Academy, the first of its kind in the world.
In short, FIFA will be supporting the development initiatives of its players, not only to boost their careers but also to help them to overcome their personal challenges.
This is a huge step forward in the development agenda of the global football community, as it marks a return to FIFA’s original vision for its players.
It is hoped the NPCDPs successes will help the global game to better reflect the aspirations of the players and their parents.
The World Cup has become the catalyst for FIFA to come back and work with its players on a new plan for youth development, as well.
This will allow the development teams to concentrate on the long-term goals of their players and to be able give them the confidence to go on and play at the highest level.
