Following invitations to stakeholders, including all confederations, at the beginning of September, discussions are being organised in the coming weeks.

"As this is a football project, in which the global interests of the game should come first, this process started with players and coaches from all over the world," FIFA said.

"Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) have been established under the stewardship of Arsene Wenger, FIFA's Chief of Global Football Development, and two-time FIFA Women's World Cup-winning coach Jill Ellis. The debate will also involve fans from around the globe."

The apex football body added, "FIFA is committed to being a forum for meaningful debate by engaging with a wide range of stakeholders including fans and looks forward to discussions on the sustainable growth of football in all regions of the world, at all levels."
