At its meeting on 2 November 2002, the Goal Bureau approved the construction of a technical centre using funds from Goal and the FIFA Financial Assistance Programme. It is hoped that the centre will give a boost to all areas of football at national level and help Guinea
to return to former glories. Construction work began recently and the facilities are due to be inaugurated early in 2006. A long-term development plan is currently being drawn up in cooperation with the FIFA Development Office in Abidjan. Ongoing youth development work and the general restructuring of the national association will play a key role in this initiative.
