The Wider Image: FIFA's African Grassroots
Members of the Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA) play a soccer match at a dusty pitch near the FIFA-sponsored grounds in Mathare valley slums in Kenya's capital Nairobi, July 9, 2015. FIFA selected the Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA), a local youth programme that connects sports with community activities including environmental development, AIDS prevention and leadership training, to be in charge of the FIFA sporting centre of excellence. While some criticise FIFAââ¬â¢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 Zurichââ¬â¢s coffers to help fund national soccer facilities in the absence of sponsors or government support. And as soccerââ¬â¢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 FIFAââ¬â¢s commitment to international development programmes. That, they say, must not happen. REUTERS/Thomas MukoyaPICTURE 21 OF 31 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "FIFA'S AFRICAN GRASSROOTS". SEARCH "AFRICAN GRASSROOTS" FOR ALL IMAGES
