The artificial turf pitch, built with the help of Goal, was inaugurated in - for Mongolia
- above-average temperatures of minus 5° in Ulaan Baatar on 24 October 2002. The President of the Asian Football Confederation, Mohamed Bin Hammam, and Prime Minister Nambaryn Enkhbayar attended the ceremony to present the new ground to the Mongolian association. Mongolia
had been unable to compete internationally owing to a lack of football pitches complying with international standards. Now, thanks to Goal, this unfortunate handicap has been removed. Many projects are now in the pipeline waiting to be realised. Offices were installed in four regions to coordinate football activities throughout the country. In the meantime, the turf will be used for national league matches and school competitions at every age level.
