The FIFA organized the first Knowledge Exchange workshop within the FIFA Talent Development Scheme (TDS) in Algiers.
With the support of CAF and the Algerian Football Association, the Algerian capital Algiers staged the first Knowledge Exchange workshop in Africa. Hosted during the prestigious CAF U-17 Africa Cup of Nations, it provided an opportunity for delegates to see some of the continent’s best youth talent on an international stage, the FIFA said on its website. The workshop brought together eight member associations from across Africa, namely: Algeria, Morocco, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Cameroon, Zambia, Ghana and South Africa.
The workshop was designed and delivered by the FIFA TDS and Technical leadership teams with the aim of enabling key members from each MA to share knowledge, combat regional challenges, and explore the leadership capabilities required to accelerate the implementation of the TDS.
The main objective of the FIFA Talent Development Scheme (TDS) is to help raise the standards of men and womens national-team football based on FIFA’s long-term commitment to global talent development.
In December 2022, the FIFA Council approved a funding allocation of USD 200 million to cover the 2023-2026 operational lifecycle of this flagship initiative.
