FIFA President Sepp Blatter says he will attend each congress of football's six continental confederations before he stands for re-election in June.
In his year-ending message, Blatter says meeting FIFA's national members in person will help set "a strategic course for the future."
Blatter is seeking a fourth four-year term in office and says football leadership is a key focus for FIFA in 2011.
The first scheduled congress is Jan. 6 when the Asian Football Confederation meets in Doha, Qatar.
The Oceania body then meets Jan. 15 in Pago Pago, American Samoa.
Blatter is scheduled to stand for re-election June 1 at FIFA's congress in Zurich.
Challengers must be nominated by one of FIFA's 208 members at least two months before the vote.
