FIFA in Focus

As FIFA Ethics and Regulations Watch, our main focus is to monitor the main body of football (FIFA). FIFA has gained a lot of power since its foundation in 1904. A power that reaches far beyond football. Our aim is to check if FIFA is executing its major responsibility according to its own ethical standards and regulations and in constant abidance with the international law and human rights.
