Kuala Lumpur: The hugely successful Asian Football Confederation (AFC) President’s initiatives, which were consolidated into two broader programmes in October last year – the AFC President’s Infrastructure Initiative and the AFC President’s Development Initiative – have been well-received and continues to enhance the strategic and alignment capabilities and the long-term development plans of the AFC Member Associations.
The Infrastructure Initiative, comprising two components – the mini-pitches and other infrastructure projects – will be inaugurated in Mongolia with the construction of three mini-pitches in the Darkhan-Uul and Khovd provinces scheduled to begin in April this year, after the materials were successfully shipped to the East Asian nation this month.
Mongolia Football Federation (MFF) General Secretary Shijir Ulziikhuu said: “The MFF recognises the importance of providing quality infrastructure and facilities for football development to thrive and I would like to thank the AFC for its commitment to develop the game here in Mongolia.
“We are confident that the mini-pitches through this AFC President’s Infrastructure Initiative will play a crucial role in developing our youth teams and ultimately inspire tomorrow’s generations of players and fans to develop a lifelong passion for the game.”......
