In a press statement issued after a lengthy meeting at the Shamow hotel in Mogadishu, Somali Football Federation president said that his meeting with Hormuut Telecom chairman Ahmed Mahmoud Yusuf and the company's deputy general manager Ahmed Abokar Hassan was very fruitful.
"Our meeting marked the beginning of our relations and we have discussed on how the Hormuut Telecom would take a great role in the promotion of football activities in Somalia," the SFF president said in his statement on Sunday.
Hormuut telecom is the largest telecommunications company in Somalia where at least 90% percent of the people use its mobiles.
