The JFA Mid-Term Plan for 2015-2022

The JFA Mission for 2015-2022

The JFA identified the eight areas as Key Success Factors (KSF) that are important for the fulfilment of “The JFA Objectives for 2030.” Furthermore, we established “The JFA Mission for 2015-2022” to confirm the tasks and measures we shall focus on during the eight-year period from 2015 to 2022 in order to fulfil the specific goals we set for 2018 and 2022 in the areas of popularisation and development. The 11 elements of the President’s Mission (formerly the Captain’s Mission) created in 2004 will be carried on. We will share the mission as well as “The JFA Objectives for 2030” with the entire football family and devote our efforts to realising “The JFA Declaration, 2005.”
