Zurich: FIFA President Gianni Infantino has outlined his three immediate priorities for FIFA to support football during and beyond the coronavirus in a video message specifically addressed to the 211 FIFA Member Associations and shared with members of the FIFA Council.
The FIFA President reiterated, in order of priority, that health comes first, that FIFA is ready to pro-actively help football through these exceptional circumstances, and that an ongoing consultation process is taking place to consider the future evolution of the sport.
“Our first priority, our principle, the one we will use for our competitions and encourage everyone to follow is that health comes first,” the FIFA President said. “I cannot stress this enough. No match, no competition, no league is worth risking a single human life. Everyone in the world should have this very clear in their mind.

It’s better to wait a little bit longer than to take any risks.”.....
