FIFA Congress

The FIFA Congress is the supreme legislative body of the International Federation of Association Football (French: Fédération Internationale de Football Association), commonly known by the acronym FIFA /ˈffə/. FIFA is the international governing body of association football, futsal and beach football.

The congress may be ordinary or extraordinary. An ordinary congress meets every year, an extraordinary congress may be convened by the FIFA Executive Committee at any time with the support of one fifth of the members of FIFA.[1]

Each of the 209 members of FIFA have one vote in the congress. The members of FIFA can propose candidates for the presidency of FIFA. The FIFA Presidential election takes place at the congress in the year following the FIFA World Cup.[1]


The FIFA congress has been held annually since 1998. It was previously held every two years. Congresses were not held between 1915–1922 and 1939–1945 due to the First and Second World Wars.

FIFA Presidential elections have taken place at the 1st, 3rd, 12th, 29th, 30th, 39th, 51st, 53rd, 61st and 65th congresses. The 1961 FIFA extraordinary congress in London elected Stanley Rous as President.[2]
