In a bid to increase Somali football activities in western nations, the Somali Football Federation has appointed technical and administrative representatives in Europe and North America who will work on behalf of the SFF in terms of the promotion of Somali football in their places.

According to a press statement from Somali Football Federation, about 95 percent of the representatives are former coaches and former notational team players whose job is expected to yield positive results for Somalia’s future international football appearances.
