FIFA is the international governing body of association football. Its origins go back to the early 20th century when a need was recognized to oversee international competition among the national associations in Europe. It is headquartered in Zurich, and its membership now comprises over 200 national associations around the world.

FIFA’s objectives include growing association football internationally, providing efforts to ensure it is accessible to everyone, and advocating for integrity and fair play. The group is responsible for the organization and promotion of association football’s major international tournaments, including the World Cup and Women’s World Cup.
