On Tuesday, February 26, 2019, Football Federation of Belize’s President, Sergio Chuc, and General Secretary, Earl Jones, attended the FIFA Football Executive Summit (FES) in Rome, Italy. The summit provided an environment where presidents and general secretaries of member associations as well as confederations would have the opportunity to meet with President of FIFA, Gianni Infantino. During those meetings, persons would be able to discuss and give opinions about matters of importance for world football.

At the summit, Belize was invited to deliver a video presentation on its projects with emphasis on the regional youth competitions developed and under FIFA’s FORWARD framework. That framework highlighted works being done with youths in Belize. According to Jose Rodriguez, Regional Office Development Manager of FIFA, FIFA has displayed great commitment in embracing new guidelines and policies set under the FORWARD Framework. The sharing of good practices, such as this framework, helps FIFA to reiterate that message of the benefits of efficient use of development funds in order to motivate other member associations.
