Somali Football Federation secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab who first addressed at the conclusion ceremony noted that the SFF was very proud of successfully accomplishing a huge task this year in terms of holding three local football leagues in the same period.

"This year was totally different from the past years, because we finished our competitions peacefully. Previously we suffered from fierce battles which halted the tournaments or caused casualties on our fans, players or journalists covering the event. This year, we say thank you Allah, because we finished all three local leagues with no human casualties during matches," SFF secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab told Friday's conclusion ceremony.

For his part the president of Somali Football Federation Ali Said Guled Roble indicated that this year's leagues were very professional than those in the past, and adding that it was because of the Somali coaches have benefitted from at least two FIFA level and nearly ten local courses for the past three years.
