Football in Estonia
Football continues to grow in popularity in Estonia, with the national association confident that the game will soon be the most popular sport in the country. Since the declaration of independence in 1992, the number of active footballers has tripled. The most famous player is Mart Poom, who currently plays for Sunderland FC in England.
The second Goal project
Beside the national stadium in Tallinn, where an artificial turf pitch was laid in the Estonian Football Association's first Goal project, the association has purchased a plot of land to serve as the site for new headquarters that will fulfil all of its needs in terms of office space, conference rooms and training facilities. Having received Goal Bureau approval for this proposed project on 3 December 2006, the association is confident that the new headquarters will serve as a modern and functional base from which it can step up its promotion of football across the country.
