You gotta help me out here. I'm a footie newbie and I've been trying to figure out what in the world FIFA stands for. I haven't been able to find it easily so this is my last resort. The best I've been able to come up with is Federation International of Footbal Associations.

Yup, that's it so translated it's The International Federation of Football Associations (obviously). Hopefully they resist the temptation to rename it The International Entertainment of Football Associations. .

I think it was part reinforcing stereotypes about athletes and part dangling ESPN's NFL broadcast rights in front of them.
