At its meeting on 4 July 2001, the Goal Bureau approved a project to build headquarters for the association together with a technical centre and a new playing surface. Funds from Goal and the FIFA Financial Assistance Programme were used to finance the project, which was realised on land donated by the government. Officially opened by FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter on 20 July 2005, the centre will be the venue for all manner of football activities and serve as a meeting place for players, coaches, referees, officials and football fans. Young players will be the primary beneficiaries of the new facilities thanks to long-term youth development work. A youth football programme is currently being put together and will begin shortly.
