FIFA propose Women's Club World Cup

FIFA Task Force for Women's Football proposes a FIFA Women's Club World Cup. The establishment of a FIFA Women's Club World Cup and the implementation of the ten key development principles for women's football were among the key points on the agenda for the FIFA Task Force for Women's Football, which met in Zurich on Tuesday.

The creation of the Task Force was announced by FIFA President Blatter in October 2013 with the aim of identifying and establishing priorities for the development of women's football.

The Task Force discussed possible concepts outlining details for the creation of a FIFA Women's Club World Cup, including an inaugural edition set for 2017.

As part of the proposal, the Task Force noted the importance of creating such a competition to create an annual showcase of elite women's football and to provide an incentive not only to clubs, but also to confederations and member associations, to strengthen club football and club structures in their respective regions.

It will now be up to the FIFA Committee for Women's Football and the FIFA Women's World Cup to examine the proposal at their meeting today and submit it in an appropriate form to the FIFA Executive Committee which will meet next on 19-20 March.
