Asian Football Federation (AFC) has awarded All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) with AFC Coaching Convention B Level certificate.
The award is a huge step for the future of Nepali football. It allows ANFA to award coaches with B accreditation without asking for support (instructor) from the AFC. Historically AFC would send instructors and every MA across Asia have the same course.
ANFA now has a group of instructors capable of supporting the delivery of all courses up to B licence level and soon some of these Nepali instructors will be confident enough to deliver our courses and provide coaching assessments.
The membership also allows ANFA to design its own course, adapt to its environment and direction which is Nepal's own playing style and identity. ANFA can now proudly develop its own way of playing.
It is also going to have a massive impact on our youth development programme such as the recently established U-13 academies. The academies now have a clear youth development programme specifically designed to produce players based on our style of football.
