Gianni Infantino has met the newly-elected President of the Malagasy Football Association (FMF), Alfred Randriamanampisoa, who explained his plans to develop football in the Indian Ocean nation. The fruitful discussions, which took place at FIFA’s Paris office (www.FIFA.com), centred on the importance of good pitches for football development, women’s football and the ways in which the FIFA Forward programme can help Madagascar.
So far, FIFA Forward funds have been used to set up an eight-team women’s football league in Madagascar and stage a national conference for the development of football in the country. Future projects include the renovation of the Carion national team technical centre, the purchase of vehicles for the national teams and the construction of a headquarters for the FMF.
