FIFA On-Line will bring the world football community an electronic avenue to network, communicate and interact through its new Member Services. Several new communication channels will be going on-line, with access to the FIFA Electronic Archives, FIFA Technical Reports and specialized information. Under development are: "Offside" (for referees and assistant referees), "From the Sideline" (for coaches), "General Admission" (for fans), "The Press Box (for the media), "The Front Office" (for managers) and "House Calls" (sports medicine).

From each customized channel, an individual will eventually have access to the FIFA Electronic Archives, containing the most thorough and comprehensive statistical repository of all FIFA competitions dating back to 1930. What's more, electronic additions of FIFA Technical Reports will be available to members. Technical Reports include, for example, statistical match analysis, tournament analysis, as well as coaching training courses, referee manuals and any other FIFA training materials.

In addition, each channel will also feature specific items of interest and communication. For example, "Offside" will include education and training materials, a referee column, live Internet broadcasts of roundtable discussions, a chatline, and more for referees and assistant referees.

We will keep you posted as to the official launch date of Member Services.
