FIFA President inaugurates FIFA Forward-funded infrastructure in El Salvador

Concluding a three-day tour of Caribbean and Central American countries, FIFA President Gianni Infantino and Concacaf President and FIFA Vice-President Victor Montagliani today took part in the XVIII Central American Football Union (UNCAF) Ordinary Congress in El Salvador. The visit was also marked by a meeting with the State President and the inauguration of a new residency for El Salvador national teams, ‘Villa Selecta’.

The UNCAF Congress was an opportunity for President Infantino to exchange with all the regional football leaders on the progress of the game in Central America.

“The 7 UNCAF Member Associations are doing great progress in the development of our game, with a clear vision and direction, in a region where football represents so much for the people,” said Infantino. “The regional association is making best use of the FIFA Forward funds allocated to all such associations around the world by investing in the organisation of competitions at all levels, for boys and girls, and I can only congratulate them for their serious work and encourage them to do even more in the future, together with FIFA and Concacaf.”
