As the world governing body FIFCO operates several important elements to help guide our members. Our focus is on our ethics in the game, regional development, and tournament growth. Our goals is to provide an added-value approach to all our members, by standardizing the game and creating synergies for our members clients.
FIFCO holds its annual meeting once a year, where members congregate to set policy, establish the operating budget, and decide on future locations of the World Corporate Champions Cup™.
Strategic development is headed by an executive member and reports to the President’s office on a periodic basis.
FIFCO has developed the “Always Play Fair™” programme to encourage and remind its participants the importance of fair play. It encourages corporate football teams and players to embrace the basis set forth by the International FAIR PLAY Committee, to show respect, friendship, team spirit, fair competition, equality, integrity, tolerance and above all joy in participation.
The FIFCO Always Play Fair™ programme recognises excellence in team and player attitudes on and off the pitch.

The FIFCO Approved stamp is destined to all ball manufacturers. FIFCO’s statues ensures that all FIFCO-sanctioned games by its members use an official match ball with the “FIFCO Approved” logo.
By standardizing the ball, games can all measure up to the same standards. To find out more about the programme – email us for a full guideline to approval.
