    Prefaces The President

    Joseph S. Blatter, FIFA President

    For FIFA as an organisation and for me personally as its President, it is a pleasure to assume the responsibility of propaga-ting certain universal principles, such as the education of our children, and the concepts of fair play and of solidarity between nations; noble and fundamental ideas which culminate in the competitions that FIFA organises.

    This time it was Guatemala in central America and the CONCACAF confede-ration which hosted the world futsal family on the occasion of the FIFA Futsal World Championship Guatemala 2000, the fourth time this competition has been held within the world-wide house of foot-ball.

    The efforts made by Guatemalas national football association under the leadership of its wise and enthusiastic Pre-sident Mauricio Caballeros were reflected in the extraordinary welcome we received from the people of the country, whose delight and enthusiasm were communica-ted to all the participants.
