AFF Nominated For Asia Football Confederation Award

The Afghanistan Football Federation has been nominated for an Asian Football Confederation (AFC) annual award.

The ceremony will be held at the end of this month – a ceremony attended by athletes from 47 countries every year.

“The nomination for the AFC Member Association of the Year Award 2017 was because of all the efforts made by Afghanistan Football Federation and footballers,” said Sayed Ali Aghazada, secretary general of the country’s football federation.

“This will project a good impression to the world. Afghanistan which has an image of a war-torn country in the world, will be displayed in its real picture by football,” said Yusuf Kargar, technical deputy head of the federation.

The Asian Football Confederation on Saturday announced the full list of nominees for this year's AFC Annual Awards gala to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, on November 29.

The nominees for the awards to be presented at the AFC Annual Awards 2017 event are:

AFC Dream Asia Award 2017

AFC Member Association of the Year Award 2017

The prestigious award is given to a Member Association in recognition of its professional administration and governance as well as its exceptional contribution to the development and promotion of the game at all levels within the country.

Recognizing the diversity of MA’s in terms of facilities and resources and looking to ensure that more MAs will receive recognition for their efforts and achievements in developing football in their country, the AFC in 2013 introduced three winners for the Member Association of the Year Award.
