According to him, 10th anniversary of the start of cooperation of FIFA and the national football federation is celebrated in 2011. There is interaction on several lines. The first of them is Goal program; it is directed to football infrastructure development. Artificial grass and 3 mini-soccer field (plus one in the Jalal-Abad) have been laid in the football center of national football federation in the frameworks of its realization. “In addition to the provided assistance $ 250 thousand for various purposes were allocated under this program. 15 percent of this sum must be aimed at women’s football developing. There is control over the charges,” said Valery Chukhrai.
In addition, a variety courses for national football federation employees are organized in the frameworks of the partnership. The new direction of cooperation is international tournaments.
