Football is by far and away the number one sport in Syria. In 1987, the national team won the Gold medal at the Mediterranean Games Football Tournament in Latakia (Syria). The Syrians qualified for the FIFA World Youth Championship in 1989, 1991 and 1995, achieving a best finish of sixth place in Portugal in 1991. Firas Al-Khatib is currently the latest in a succession of well-known players. The talented youngster is seen as a future star of Syrian football.
On 22 October 2008, the Goal Bureau approved an application from the Syrian Football Association to install an artificial turf pitch at the Al Fayha sports complex in Damascus. The aim is to improve training facilities by offering perfect playing conditions all year round.
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.
