Hayrapetyan re-elected in Armenia

Ruben Hayrapetyan has been re-elected as Football Federation of Armenia (FFA) president for a fourth term, and says youth development and football infrastructures are key priorities.

Football Federation of Armenia (FFA) president Ruben Hayrapetyan has been unanimously re-elected for a fourth term.

The 52-year-old graduate of the Armenian State University of Economics continues in the role he first assumed in 2002, and emphasised the development of youth football and football infrastructures as major priorities. Football academies have been built in recent years, and facilities have been modernised and continue to progress. New pitches will be opened in the country in the near future.

"Although many things are already done, we still need to work a lot for the development of football in Armenia," Mr Hayrapetyan said after his re-election. "The development of youth football and football infrastructures are our main goals."
