Infantino: FIFA organizes about 1% of the matches of the world's best clubs
"FIFA organizes about 1% of the matches of the best clubs in the world. 98-99% of the matches are organized by the various championships and federations", said President Gianni Infantino at the opening of the 74th FIFA Congress in Bangkok.

This reaction of his came as a response to the concerns of federations and national championships about the busy calendar of teams after the launch of the 32-team Club World Cup, while further, Infantino added that FIFA funds football in 211 countries, while adding that 70% of federations or associations have their income from FIFA.

"FIFA finances football all over the world. The revenue we generate goes not just to a few clubs in one country, but to 211 countries around the world. There is no other organization that does this. Our mission is to organize events and competitions and develop football around the world, because 70% of FIFA's member associations would not have football without the resources coming directly from FIFA", declared the "number one" of FIFA. .
