Debbie Hewitt, chair of The Football Association, has been elected as a FIFA vice president.
She will start her four-year term with immediate effect and becomes the first female FIFA vice president in the history of the organisation. Hewitt succeeds David Martin, the former President of the Irish FA, who held the role since 2021.
Hewitt said: “I’m honoured to be appointed as a FIFA vice president and sincerely thank European football associations for their support.
“My aim is to be a meaningful voice for UEFA in international debates as FIFA seeks to grow the game. I will work hard to promote good governance and transparency, and strengthen UEFA’s relations with FIFA.”
