FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and FIFA Vice-President Jack A. Warner opened the sports complex built using funds from Goal and the FIFA Financial Assistance Programme on 26 November 2002. Situated ten minutes away from the city centre in one of the best areas of Guatemala
City, it has a building with accommodation for 44 players and six officials in addition to three pitches. The centre will be the focal point for intensive long-term development work planned by the Guatemalan association. It was built on land donated by the municipality headed by its President, Fritz Garcia Gallont. He thanked FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter for the fact that Guatemala
had been able to benefit from the programme and granted him the freedom to Guatemala
City. Yet another milestone in Guatemalan football history is about to be set. The association's headquarters, funded by the FIFA Financial Assistance Programme will soon be opening its doors.
