The Romanian Football Federation (FRF) is a non-profit organisation established in 1909. The mission of the FRF is to promote football all over the Romanian territory, to develop the football phenomenon in all its amplitude and to provide an organisational model for Romanian sports.
The FRF’s activity is based on a set of principles and values, that define its identity and manner of acting. They enumerate values such as:
- love for football
- cooperation and trust
- autonomy and subsidiarity
- good governance
- development and performance
- no to violence
- no to racism
- fair play and perseverance
The Federation finds itself in the process of reforming and rebuilding the sports phenomenon at a national level, thus applying for the first time in Romania strategic management tools, answering the need to plan, step by step, all the necessary steps to fulfill the undertaken mission.
FRF is implementing the ”Strategic plan for the development of football in Romania 2015-2020”, a programmatic medium and long-term document, whose objectives are to exponentially expand the number of people involved in football and improve the attractiveness and visibility of the game, while opening new opportunities for players and fans to involve in the phenomenon.
The Romanian Football Federation is committed to its social responsibilities and is, for example, a project partner in the Pan-European TACBIS (“Tackling Colour Blindness in Sports”) programme. The aim is to investigate the prevalence of colour blindness in football (fans and players), identify barriers to progression for colour blind players and coping mechanisms employed by colour blind players.
