The Summit 

According to FIFA, the Executive Football Summits were introduced in 2016 as one of the key initiatives of its reforms to offer a platform for exchange and encourage greater participation of FIFA's 211 member associations. 

Each summit brings together presidents and secretary generals of around 20 member associations with the purpose of discussing strategic matters for the future of the game.

The current series kicked off on November 21 in Baku (Azerbaijan) and will run thru March 2018, with the last meeting taking place in Lima (Peru).
