Menial budget allocated for Afghan Football Federation for 2014
Finance Ministry has earmarked a total of USD 700,000 to the AFF with no additional development budget, something that has raised concerns over the future progress and betterment of Afghanistan’s football team.
Head of Parliament’s Committee on Health and Sport said the budget was not sufficient to meet the needs of the football team.
According to reports, President Hamid Karzai ordered the Finance Ministry to pay USD one million to AFF as a reward for the successes the national team achieved during the year 2013. However, there has been no evidence of this transfer taking place.
Afghanistan brought home the first international cup in 2013 after defeating India in the final match of the South Asia Football Federation championship.
AFF also received the 2013 Fair Play Award of the FIFA Ballon d’Or on Monday night in Zurich, Switzerland.
The Fair Play Award is a FIFA recognition of a team who demonstrates remarkable achievements in grassroots level football.
Through the aftereffects of war and destruction Afghanistan has been able to bring unity and solidarity through developments achieved in football.
