March 6, 2017 : The Asian Football Confederation’s expert pool for the League Development Program arrived in Kathmandu on Monday.
The pool comprises of two members, namely, AFC Development Officer Yogesh Desai and AFC’s League Management Expert Consultant Troy McColl.
The AFC League Development Program is a part of the ANFA Strategic Planning that AFC had approved.
The delegation is set to hold several rounds of meeting with ANFA officials and the officials of the A Division Clubs to discuss best possible ways to make the upcoming A Division League better.
Earlier in January, a delegation of the AFC had held meetings with different stakeholders of football to form a strategic plan of the ANFA. The strategic plan aims at strengthening the management, administration, finance and other factors that play a key role in developing football in the country.
One of the key factors emphasized in the strategic planning mission was club licensing. A seminar was conducted in this regard with A and B Division Clubs to familiarize them with the licensing system.
The ANFA is committed towards implementing the licensing system by 2018 .
