Contrary to wrestling or archery, football is not a traditional sport in Mongolia and has had a hard struggle to make its presence felt. Having joined FIFA only recently (in 1999), the Mongolian Football Federation took part in the East Asian Football Championship qualifying round in February 2003 in Hong Kong and promptly celebrated their first victory at an international competition by beating Guam 2-0. In April, the national team took part in the qualifying round of the Asian Cup in Bhutan, following up with yet another victory (5-0) over the same opponents.
Given the country's unique climate - Mongolia's football season lasts no longer than five months - the Mongolian Football Federation now wishes to construct a futsal hall of FIFA-approved dimensions. On 21 March 2007, the Goal Bureau therefore approved a project to construct sports facilities with dressing rooms and an indoor hall in Ulaanbaatar.
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.
