Fifa Presidential candidate, Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, has advocated for more funds been pumped into women’s football, as he publishes his manifesto.
Prince Ali says if elected as Fifa president, he would invest more in both Women’s and Youth World Cup, and also plans to include a “full debate” about technology in football.
The Jordanian, who is also a Fifa vice-president for Asia, is one of the three candidates seeking to unseat incumbent Sepp Blatter as head of football’s governing body. Other candidates in the running are: Dutch FA boss Michael van Praag and former Portugal international Luis Figo.
“We must encourage and support women’s football from the grassroots all the way up, with better investment in women’s leagues and international events,” said Prince Ali.
The Fifa elective congress comes up on 29 May in Zurich.
