The delegation met with numerous stakeholders and the BFA executive as part of their appraisal which will form the basis of a detailed working partnership between the BFA and FIFA for the next few years.

They also visited Police Headquarters, several clubs grounds and held a meeting with local football clubs at Devonshire Recreation Club.

Additionally they visited Curving Avenue and St Monica’s Road in order to ascertain of how FIFA and other agencies could help to play a part in helping local communities.
