FIFA president Gianni Infantino has said that the 2022 FIFA World Cup,
which will be held in Qatar after five years, will be a very important
event for the Asian continent.
This came on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of the mini-stadium project of the Thai Football Association, which was inaugurated in the Thai capital Bangkok, in the presence of the President of the Asian Football Association Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifah and members of the executive committee of the Asian body.
The stadiums were created with funding from the AFC President’s Initiatives Program and the launch of the new stadiums was held at the Center of Excellence of the Thai Federation at Bangkok Thonburi University.
“The Asian continent is very important for the FIFA, especially after the continent has presented impressive examples both at the organisational level and at the results level,” said Infantino.
“The provision of appropriate facilities is essential for the development of football,” The FIFA President said. “We are confident that these stadiums will have a significant impact on the development of football in Thailand.”
