FIFA Master Alumni

The FMA: FIFA Master Alumni Association

The FIFA Master Alumni, FMA, is an independent alumni association of those who graduated from the International Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport, also known as FIFA Master. The FMA is not a department or division of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

The association was established in 2003, under article 60 of the Swiss Civil Code and domiciled in Neuchatel, Switzerland.

The objectives of the FMA are:

  • To officially represent the alumni of the FIFA Master; 
  • To promote and raise the awareness and profile of the FIFA Master within sports organisations, on a worldwide basis;
  • To create and maintain networking platforms to enable the alumni to keep in touch in the best possible way;
  • To promote business (and employment) opportunities and exchange of information among the members of the FMA;
  • To maintain an active link between its members and official bodies of the FIFA Master (Universities, CIES, FIFA, Scientific Committee and Executive Board of the Master);
  • To serve an active role in the strategic planning of the future of the Master.

The FMA organizes and supports the organization of a series of activities in order to fulfil its objectives worldwide. Among them we do:

  • World Gatherings;
  • Regional gatherings;
  • Partnership with other high profile events;
  • Seminars;
  • Mentorship programme to the current students of the Master;
