FIFA President visits Mongolia







Joseph Blatter, the President of FIFA, and Mohamed Bin Hammam, Chairman of the FIFA Goal Bureau and AFC, visited Ulaanbaatar on September 23-24.

Blatter officially inaugurated the third stage of the Goal Project in Mongolia. The purpose of the visit was to review the progress of Mongolian Football Federation's Goal Project. He attended a foundation ceremony for the construction of indoor stadium of 5,000 seats that will be built in Yarmag, Ulaanbaatar. The construction is scheduled to be completed on October 2009, when Mongolian Football Federation celebrates its 50th Anniversary.

The President of Mongolia N.Enkhbayar received the visiting FIFA President and awarded him Order of AltanGadas (Polar Star), the highest state prize. More details will be available on this week's UB Post.
