Mini pitches

Print

At the UEFA Congress in 2004 european football governing body took a decision to found mini pitches in all European football family countries in the framework of football “social responsibility” and for football popularization and development. The multi-functional mini pitches were built up to promote sports and football popularization and development in particular.

A decision was taken to provide all UEFA member associations 1 000 000 CHF each with the purpose of building at least 20 such mini pitches in their countries during the period 2005-2008. As the first step UEFA presented a mini pitch to each member association in connection with UEFA 50th anniversary. In Armenia the mini pitch was built up at Agatangeghos 7 and it’s opening was implemented with the presence of UEFA Executive Committee member Per Ravn Omdal and FFA President Ruben Hayrapetyan.

The program had some peculiarities and it provided for being released from all taxes by the usurer countries. The federations and all communities of the country in question, which has been given a mini pitch, had to take part in the program. FFA applied to Armenia Government as well as to all community leaders for qualifying the program as humane and providing the FFA with proper territories for mini pitches founding and presenting them to the communities in future. 7 regions quickly responded to the request and subsequently the local authorities undertook the mini pitches’ territories’ providing, lighting, and exploit care and protection expenses. FFA chose the territories with the principles of “apply the first, get the first” as well as being possibly close to secondary schools and populated areas.

42 mini pitches were founded in Armenia during 2005-2007, which were later on presented to the local communities.
