What will the world look like in 2030? How will football change by the end of the decade? And where does Portuguese football want to be in the year when, if all goes as expected, it will (in partnership with Spain) organize the World Cup? It is the possible answer (taking into account unforeseen events such as epidemics or wars) to these three questions that the Portuguese Football Federation intends to find and anticipate in Football 2030, the Strategic Plan for the Decade, which has already been approved by the Board of Directors and now presented to journalists , following an action led by Fernando Gomez, President of the FPF, Luis Sobral (CEO), Mafalda Urbano (Executive Vice President) and José Coceiro (Vice President) and to which advisor Deloitte contributed.
The first step in determining the direction the FPF Board intends for the near future naturally involves figuring out where to begin. “High performance of men’s national teams and one of the best men’s professional leagues at European level (sixth)”; “A globally recognized formation with a large number of professional players and coaches in the main tournaments”; «One of the countries in Europe with the highest percentage of the population who registered an interest in football (74%); The “high maturity of the federal structure, which is recognized in the world and has the capacity to organize major events throughout the world”, can be read on the first pages of the plan. Once the starting point has been determined, it is time to get acquainted with what should be, in the opinion of the Portuguese Football Federation, Portuguese football ambitions for 2030: “the ability to connect with all Portuguese, creating a suitable sport., an educational and social offer for all ages”; “To be the biggest promotional vehicle for Portugal in the world through the quality of national football”; “To be the main supporter of equality and integrity in society”; “To be the greatest coach of reference for players, coaches, referees and other football agents.”
