The participants discussed a plan to resume regional amateur tournaments after the consummation of the state of emergency and quarantine.
At the meeting, a proposal was made to establish an amateur Kazakhstan Futsal Championship in a 7 x 7 format as a project to expand competitive practice. The options for launching a popular tournament abroad, and especially in Latin America, found interest and were accepted for consideration.
The Kazakhstan Football Federation, holds similar and also widespread tournaments in 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 formats.
“The basic way of popularizing the game of millions and promoting a healthy lifestyle in general is amateur football. In Kazakhstan, KFF and local enthusiasts hold competitions in which hundreds of thousands of amateur football players compete. The recent result has been appreciated by UEFA. Kazakhstan, as one of the leaders in the implementation of the Grassroots Leaders International program for the development of grassroots football, has been awarded a prestigious bronze status,” said Yerlan Jamantayev, Director of the KFF Grassroots, Youth and Women's Football Department.
