Macri served a four-year term as president of Argentina until losing an election three months ago. While in office, he invited FIFA President Gianni Infantino to speak at the G20 gathering of world leaders in Buenos Aires in December 2018.
On a visit to FIFA headquarters last June, Macri was the first person to receive FIFA’s “Living Football Award” handed out by Infantino.
Macri will work with the foundation’s chief executive, Youri Djorkaeff, who was part of France’s 1998 World Cup-winning team.
FIFA said it has a goal of raising $1 billion from investors for educational programs.
