“I am delighted to be here today, in a country which has seen difficult times and is once again on the right track,” said the FIFA President. “Unity is crucial for the future of this country and football can play its part in this process, because football has the unique power to bring people together, boys and girls, men and women. Mali has the potential to shine in Africa and also at the world level and FIFA is there to provide support where it is needed. “

During the meeting with the authorities, the FIFA president took the opportunity to share with him the recent agreement between FIFA and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to launch a school football program. The initiative will use football as a tool to teach children about life skills, as well as to create a greater sense of unity and solidarity among the participants. A similar initiative could be launched in Mali to encourage the return of children to school, many of whom still experience low school attendance which had to close during the difficult times that the country has experienced recently.

Accompanied by the President of FEMAFOOT and the Minister of Youth and Sports, the President of FIFA visited the site of the future National Technical Center and laid the first stone. The technical center, which is supported by funds from the FIFA Forward Program, will see training and development facilities made available for regional and national football in Mali.

“Today is an important day in the history of Malian football,” said the FIFA President. “This new center will provide essential training and development facilities so that Malian footballers can reach their full potential. I am sure that by laying the foundations for this new center, we are also laying the foundations for renewed success here in Mali, as actors from all walks of life and creeds will come together here to elevate this great nation to the highest peaks in the world. ‘Africa and the world. Soccer.”

“On behalf of all the Malian people, I express our gratitude to the President of FIFA for this visit, in particular for having been present and laying this first stone which will house the future and the first football academy at the cutting edge of technology of our country, ”declared the president of FEMAFOOT, Mamoutou Touré. “Thank you very much for everything you are also doing for Africa, for football in the world, and in particular for the support you have been able to give us through the FIFA COVID-19 relief plan during the current coronavirus pandemic and highlighting the need. to act together and show solidarity across the world. “
