Football in Kosovo's schools

The Football Federation of Kosovo (FFK) is focusing on football for girls and boys this year.


Despite the ongoing pandemic, the federation is making good progress with its projects in this area.

A curriculum-based programme has started to be rolled out for nine-year-olds in primary schools. To ensure the highest quality of education, the federation has hired professional coaches to run the school football lessons.

The programme will help children develop their physical skills and open the way for them to join local teams, and perhaps even turn professional one day. The programme is still in its first year and has been implemented with success in 14 schools so far. During the next three years, the federation aims to have 80% of schools involved.
