FIFA president Gianni Infantino described it as the “first step” in a wider plan to assist those struggling due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“The pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges for the entire football community and, as the world governing body, it is FIFA’s duty to be there and support the ones that are facing acute needs,” he said.

“This starts by providing immediate financial assistance to our member associations, many of which are experiencing severe financial distress. This is the first step of a far-reaching financial relief plan we are developing to respond to the emergency across the whole football community.”

FIFA said the next stages of its financial relief plan are being worked on and would be communicated in due course.

FIFA is reported to have cash reserves of around $2.7bn (almost £2.2bn).
