The staunchest fan of Jordanian football is the King of Jordan himself no less. It comes as no surprise therefore to learn that the government donated land to the national association for the construction of ten football pitches for the country's first-division clubs. Jordan was the first country to win two successive Panarabian Games (in 1997 and 1999). Coach Mohd Abu Alawad, former national team captain, was awarded the highest accolade for coaching in the country for this achievement - the Golden Coach prize. Other impressive results were runners-up and third place at the West Asian Games and Arab Nations Cup respectively, both staged in 2002.
On 21 March 2007, following the inauguration of the association's headquarters and technical centre in Amman, the Goal Bureau ratified the construction of an artificial turf pitch of FIFA-approved dimensions complete with floodlights and dressing rooms. This new all-weather pitch will primarily be used by the country's national teams, although it will also be placed at the disposal of women's teams and youth teams.
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.
