Iran rank among Asia's most prominent football nations. Their most recent successes include gold medals at the Asian Games Football Tournament in 1998 and 2002. They are supreme masters of the game of futsal, having won successive confederation championships between 1999 and 2002. It was therefore no surprise to see Iran as the only Asian team keeping abreast with the world's best at the FIFA Futsal World Championship in Guatemala in 2000. Several players switched to European clubs after the 1998 FIFA World Cup? - most of them to Germany. Ali Daei (Arminia Bielefeld, Bayern Munich and Hertha BSC), Mahdi Mahdavikia (VfL Bochum and Hamburger SV), Karim Bagheri (Arminia Bielefeld, then Charlton Athletic in England), Vahid Hashemian (VfL Bochum) and Khodaded Azizi (1. FC Cologne, then San José in the USA) have all helped to spread the reputation of Iranian football around the world.
The artificial turf pitch, which was approved by the Goal Bureau on 22 October 2008, will be part of the Iranian football academy that was built in Tehran under the country's first Goal project. Thanks to the addition of an all-weather pitch, players of all ages will be able to use the training centre all year round, which will also lead to the introduction of long-term training programmes.

AFC World Cup Qualifiers
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is the governing body of association football in Asia. It has 46 member countries, mostly located on the Asian continent. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia, transcontinental nations such as Turkey and Russia are instead in the UEFA, whereas countries such as Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Israel are entirely in Asia (Central or Western Asia) and still members of the UEFA. On the other hand, Australia, formerly in the OFC, has been in the AFC since 2006, in the same way as the Oceanian nations of Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, which are also members of AFC.
