Football takes pride of place in the sporting life of Yemen. In recent years, former top players have been assuming responsibilities in the youth sector at the national association. The fact that Yemenhave qualified for the FIFA U-17 World Championship in Finland is an achievement that, only a short while ago, they would never have dreamed of. Never before has a Yemeni team qualified for a FIFA final competition. The hard work being undertaken with young players is now being reflected in the senior national team. It scored a noteworthy triumph by coming second at the 2001/2002 Al-Aqsa Cup.
A national technical centre is to be added to the training and seminar facilities around the association's headquarters. This was the aim of the project that was approved by the Goal Bureau on 21 March 2007. Emphasis was laid on the erection of seminar rooms, medical and fitness facilities and space for accommodating young people with a view to using the amenities in future as a youth academy. There are, of course, also comprehensive training facilities for Yemeni national 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.
