Somali Football Federation (SFF) has launched a new office for the South West football Association on Monday, as part of the new regional football development scheme.
In February this year, Somali Football Federation executive committee approved a number of football development programs which included the implementation of football administration offices in all regions and the construction of stadiums in several regions before the end of the year.
Somali Football Federation senior vice president, Ali Abdi Mohamed, deputy chairman for the regional football development committee, Abokar Islaw Hassan and the South West State minister for youth and sports, Ali Mohamed Ali have jointly inaugurated the new office in the city of Baidoa, 246 kilometers south west of the capital Mogadishu.
The launch of the new office for the regional football association comes nearly three weeks after a survey conducted by the SFF identified major football development needs in the South Western regional State.
The regional state’s minister for youth and sports Ali Mohamed Ali thanked Somali Football Federation for the implementation of the office which is fully equipped with office equipment and furniture.
Meanwhile, the SFF delegation and the regional minister for youth and sport together with the South Western state football association office bearers visited the ill-equipped Dr. Ayub Stadium in Baidoa to study the situation of the field.
