Through the summits, key findings are fed into various decision-making bodies such as the FIFA Council and ultimately the FIFA Congress. The Summit in Jamaica will will embrace a full day workshop with some breakout sessions, which will be conducted in an open, casual manner and dialogue.

In extending the invitation to the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) to support FIFA in hosting the summit, the chief member association officer from FIFA said 'the planning and organisation of the FIFA event provides an excellent practise and experience sharing possibility between the FIFA administration and the operational team members at the JFF'.
