13 July 2019 – While the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ concluded in style in Lyon on 7 July, the tournament will once again take centre stage in Milan, Italy on 22 September, 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 FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 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 Ujević, 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 FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 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 Russia™.
