Victory in the U-14 Nations Tournament and runners-up and third place finishes in the U-17 and U-20 Tournaments of the Asean Football Federation are the rewards for the Laos Football Federation's hard work in the sphere of youth football over the past few years. Several former top players such as Samphou Phonsa (now Director of Youth Programmes and Coaching), Xaysana Savatdy (now U-14 national team coach) and Bounlap Kenkitisack (U-16 national team coach) have committed themselves to youth development. The government supports the association in organising competitions at every age level. Summer camps are frequently arranged for primary and secondary school children with the help of the education authorities.
On 4 February 2008 the Goal Bureau approved the construction of a technical centre specialising in women's football, consisting of 12 rooms providing accommodation, a canteen for 60 people and an office for the women's football committee. The centre, which is to be built in the district of Chanthaboury in Ban Hoyhong will be equipped with an artificial pitch and besides being used by female players, will be available for other football-related purposes.
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.
