Football in Kyrgyzstan
Football is the most popular sport in Kyrgyzstan, a country that gained independence in 1991. The national association takes part in all FIFA and AFC competitions at senior and youth level. While funds are limited, costs for travel and accommodation for international matches are prohibitively high. It is therefore extremely difficult for the national teams to gain experience, apart from in official competitions.
Third Goal project
With a view to completing the sports complex begun in Bishkek as part of the first and second Goal projects, the Football Federation of Kyrgyz Republic decided to install a new artificial turf pitch. This pitch will result in increased use of the complex and improved organisation of player training and competitions held at the centre in Bishkek.
