Youths play soccer on an artificial pitch at the Football Centre for Hope in Cape Town's Khayelitsha township, June 26, 2015. The centre, one of several built by FIFA in South Africa in the run-up to the 2010 Soccer World Cup, aims to develop the sport and tackle youth issues in the impoverished township. While some criticise FIFA’s flow of cash to Africa and other developing regions as a tool that departing leader Sepp Blatter used to build his electoral power base, many nations depend on that cash from Zurich’s coffers to help fund national soccer facilities in the absence of sponsors or government support. And as soccer’s world governing body, engulfed in the worst crisis in its 111-year history, focuses on cleaning up its house, there are those within the sport who fear the emphasis on internal reform could undermine FIFA’s commitment to international development programmes. That, they say, must not happen. REUTERS/Mike HutchingsPICTURE 1 OF 31 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "FIFA'S AFRICAN GRASSROOTS". SEARCH "AFRICAN GRASSROOTS" FOR ALL IMAGES
