"Such course has a great importance for Somali Football Federation who has been prioritising the educational enhancement for the past several years," education officer Ali Mohamed Ahmed told the media.

He added that the SFF has been working hard in terms of the development of the sectors of refereeing, coaching and administration.

He said that instructors at the course are taught lessons relating to the information technology, since it is more important that instructors must know about IT as they will have to use laptops, projectors and other key electronic elements while teaching at future courses in their countries.
