FIFA pledges $3 million to aid Haiti soccer
FIFA has pledged $3 million to help Haiti rebuild its soccer
The sport’s governing body created a special fund Thursday in
addition to the $250,000 in emergency aid it provided after the
Jan. 12 earthquake.
FIFA promised to help rebuild Haiti’s soccer federation
headquarters, coaching centers and playing fields. FIFA also will
provide equipment for leagues and youth competitions.
The ruling body is acting on a report from executive Jack
Warner, who visited the country to assess what help was needed.
