Football in Honduras
Honduras continues to produce countless raw, footballing talents blessed with outstanding skill. However, to date, the national team has only qualified for one FIFA World Cup? finals - in 1982. The U-20 team appeared at the FIFA World Youth Championship in 1977, 1995 and 1999. Countless players have earned transfers to Europe or the USA. Carlos Pavón, David Suazo and Julio Cesar Léon play in Italy, while Amado Guevara appears in US Major League Soccer with the New York MetroStars.
Second Goal project
One of the main benefits for the Honduras football association of the project that the Goal Bureau approved on 15 March 2006 will be the financial savings it will make thanks to its new accommodation for national teams at various levels. Previously, teams had to stay in hotels during preparations and training camps. In addition to providing rooms for a diverse range of purposes, the planned technical centre in Siguatepeque will also have accommodation for team management officials. To round off the facilities, plans are also being made to add several grass pitches in due course.
