The Football Federation of Kosovo (FFK) is continuing to work on the growth of football in the country.
Since Kosovo has a young population, the federation is implementing projects to involve young people in football. Also, the growth of Kosovo’s and the world’s favourite sport is one of the FFK’s key priorities. Hence the Spontaneous Football project, otherwise known as Street Soccer, which has just started.
Many of Kosovo’s footballers who are successful in the international arena today showed their talent for football by playing with their friends in the neighbourhoods where they grew up, i.e. by playing spontaneous football. The FFK therefore decided to develop this format institutionally.
Recently, the federation has used public spaces in the capital city, Priština, to offer children the opportunity to enjoy football. In addition to entertaining children, the project also aims to discover and identify new talents.
Easier access to football
Cooperation with local institutions is now planned to find adequate spaces where children will have easier access to the game of football.
Over the years, Kosovars have expressed their desire to play football despite a lack of sports facilities. Now, with the support of UEFA, the conditions are being fulfilled for young people to play the game and creating opportunities for new generations to live out their passion for football and perhaps even turn it into a profession. The goal is to work so that our children’s future is a bright one for football.
