The FIFA Program is designed to introduce football to children from the tender age of 6-12 years, while developing teachers and aspiring coaches who have ambition to empower their local communities and improve their own skills.

SAFA’s Vincent Tseka said development within the Association’s Regions would be 2018’s watchword.

“We are very excited for what 2018 has in store for the development of football, we intend on holding as many Grassroots programs as possible around the country. We are still on track with Vision 2022; our intention is to bring football to each and every household in the country. We are going to introduce the next generation of footballers through these festivals and it is an advantage for the children that the coaches will be qualified to teach them the fundamental of the game,” said Tseka.
