The Wider Image: FIFA's African Grassroots
Children walk across a football field wearing FIFA bibs during the launch of a grassroots football training session September 22, 2015 at the technical training centre built with fund from FIFA in conjunction with local football governing body, Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA), in Njeru, Jinja district, eastern Uganda. 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/James Akena TPX IMAGES OF THE DAYPICTURE 14 OF 31 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "FIFA'S AFRICAN GRASSROOTS". SEARCH "AFRICAN GRASSROOTS" FOR ALL IMAGES
