FIFA funds programs to boost Afghan football

Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has invested in various projects to boost football in Afghanistan.

Afghan football receives new headquarters, an indoor futsal hall and a beach soccer pitch through FIFA’s Goal and Challenger programs.

FIFA invested a total of USD 1,172,375 in the three projects, much to the delight of the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF).

“We thank FIFA for supporting and assisting football development in Afghanistan through various projects and programs,” said AFF president Karim Keramuddin. “With great assistance from FIFA we are able to do various activities and develop infrastructure all across the country. What we have achieved in football in last three years would not have been possible without the assistance and support from FIFA.”

The headquarters, constructed within the AFF Complex in Kabul, can accommodate the entire administration, and is ready for use immediately.

Futsal is highly popular in Kabul, with over 400 teams, and now the AFF can host high-level competitions in a secure environment.

The beach soccer pitch, meanwhile, has a spectator tribune with a 300-person capacity. Afghanistan are the only team from the region that participates in beach soccer tournaments.
