EAFF U-15 Boys’ Tournament 2018 – President Message

Hello everyone!

It gives me a great delight in having the opportunity to organise this year’s EAFF U-15 Boys’ Tournament in Beijing, China. Ten (10) participating teams from East Asia will compete over the course of 6 days to showcase their potential and talents through this tournament with the financial assistance from FIFA Forward Development Programme.

East Asia has always produced exciting young talents over the years and I am excited to witness the energy and enthusiasm of these young players at this tournament which I am hopeful will be a strong platform in developing them into leading group of players in Asia. I am also confident that China will provide an excellent environment for all participating teams throughout the EAFF U-15 Boys’ Tournament 2018.

A referee clinic and a coaching course will also be conducted further demonstrating EAFF’s determination to develop the technical and educational aspects of football in East Asia. I am confident that these courses will elevate the level of referees and coaching in our region.

Furthermore, I hope this tournament will be a casting light for the future of East Asian football and to show the world the true value of communication between the participating countries.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Chinese Football Association for hosting the EAFF U-15 Boys’ Tournament 2018 and extending their warm hospitality to the participating teams and all those involved in this exciting competition.

I wish every participating team all the best.

Mong Gyu Chung
President, East Asian Football Federation
