FIFA CENTENNIAL - PROGRAMME OF EVENTS
FIFA celebrates its Centennial in 2004 - 100 years "For the Good of the Game"
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) is commemorating its Centennial with a variety of activities throughout 2004 to pay tribute to the universality of football and honour people and places of historic importance to the "beautiful game".
