Published October 30, 2013
ASIAN OFFICIALS' RECOMMENDATIONS: INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL reported "under the chairmanship" of FIFA VP Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, Asian football officials have "concluded a high-profile round table in Jordan by recommending a series of proposals to boost the development of grassroots football in the region." The package of "recommendations for driving grassroots football forward" includes the initial priority for grassroots football in Asia of girls and boys from 5 to 12 years of age, "followed by girls and boys from 13 to 19 years of age." Another recommendation encourages football bodies to organize "grassroots activities for men and women as well." The recommendations also suggest that Asian football bodies "must share best practices from organizations large and small, and communicate grassroots information using the Internet and other media" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 10/29).
