73rd FIFA Congress

The 73rd FIFA Congress will take place in Kigali, Rwanda, on March 16, 2023. The 2023 FIFA presidential elections will take place at the 73rd FIFA Congress, the convening of which was approved by the FIFA Council during its meeting on March 30, 2022 (https: //fifa.fans/39MRdzn).

Kigali has already hosted a FIFA Council meeting in October 2018.

Amendments to the Regulations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™

Given the need to maintain additional flexibility due to the unique timing of the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ on the world calendar, as well as the broader context of the disruptive effects caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on teams before and during tournaments, the Bureau has decided the following:

The maximum number of players in the launch list has been increased from 35 to 55.

The number of players to be included in the final list is increased to a minimum of 23 and a maximum of 26.

The last day at club level for the 23 to 26 players nominated in the final list will be on November 13, 2022.

No more than 26 people (up to 15 alternates (https://fifa.fans/3tXidmR) and 11 team officials, one of these officials must be the team doctor) will be allowed to sit on the team bench.

Equipment regulations for FIFA competitions

Following an in-depth review of the 2015 edition of the FIFA Equipment Regulations, which considered best practice in football and selected sports industry regulations, while also taking into account the relevant provisions of the Laws of the Game and other FIFA regulations, the Bureau has decided to apply changes for the 2022 edition. The updated Equipment Regulations are available on FIFA.com (https://fifa.fans/3tWhBh4).

FIFA U-20 World Cup Indonesia 2023™

In December 2020, as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bureau decided to cancel the 2021 edition of the FIFA U-20 World Cup™ and appointed the Indonesian Football Association (PSSI) to organize the competition in 2023. Following discussions with the PSSI, as well as consultations with all confederations, the Bureau has confirmed that the tournament will be played from May 20 to June 11, 2023.
