Figure Of The Month – 22
At a meeting in Zurich on 4 February 2008, the Goal Bureau announced that since March 2007, a total of 25 Goal projects have been completed and inaugurated as part of FIFA’s development programme. The Bureau also approved 22 new projects (association headquarters, technical centre and/or football turf pitches) including first projects for Korea Republic, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal, second projects in 12 countries and third projects in six further countries. In addition, two first projects that had already been selected – Brunei and Japan – received final approval. However, a Goal project in Barbados has been shelved until further notice due to a lack of progress.
