Technical Director's Handbook

FIFA, 01 Nov 2022


Football associations exist to deliver football on the pitch. Within each FIFA member association, it is the technical department that has the greatest influence over that core business and holds the keys to success. The FIFA Technical Director's Handbook is designed to help associations develop in the way that best suits them.

The nine chapters of the Technical Director's Handbook cover a broad range of subjects, from the structure of the technical department to delivering major projects and ideas for professional development. It is not intended as a prescriptive instruction manual; rather, it should be used as a framework of ideas and techniques that technical directors can adapt as required to meet the needs of their associations. The Handbook also provides useful context for FIFA's existing technical manuals, which cover every level of the beautiful game from the grassroots to elite men's and women's football.
