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.
The second Goal Project
The association's first Goal project, involving an artificial turf pitch in Bishkek, was inaugurated in September 2004 and has since been in regular use. On 22 September 2004, the Goal Bureau approved a second Goal project, this time to renovate a technical centre in Bishkek, lay a natural turf pitch and upgrade the centre's existing artificial turf surface. These new and improved facilities will boost development at all levels. On 4 February 2008, the Goal Bureau approved an additional amount for the conclusion of the project.
