Football in Djibouti
90% of young people in Djibouti play football. There is therefore no doubt that the sport is easily the country's most popular. In 1998, the national association participated in the qualifying competitions for the African Cup of Nations and the FIFA World Cup? for the first time. A national championship, coordinated centrally by the national association, is in place at all levels.
The second Goal project
An artificial turf pitch of international dimensions is being added to the technical centre in Djibouti that was constructed in the association's first Goal project. This new surface will make it possible to play league matches all year round. The Goal Bureau approved the application submitted by the Djibouti football association on 3 December 2006. The project will significantly improve the training facilities available to all of Djibouti's national teams.
