DILI, 30 march 2022 (TATOLI)- The Football Federation of Timor-Leste (FFTL), has prepared a $50,000 to facilitate the U-23 national selection football to participate in the SEA Games match which will be held in Vietnam on may, 2022, revealed the Deputy Secretary General of the FFTL, Frederico Martins.

The FFTL provided its own funds to facilitate the U-23 soccer team and will not ask more fund to the Secretary of State of Youth and Sport (SSYS), because SSYS had facilitated the National Olympic of Timor–Leste (CONTL) and the National Sport Confederation of Timor – Leste (CDTL) to conduct its activities in Timor – Leste.

“Based on the FFTL‘s agreement with SSYS, CDTL and CONTL will accompany the U-23 soccer players to participate the SEA Games match in Vietnam this year, therefore we are preparing $50,000 to pay the air plane tickets but we are still coordinating with ticket prices and the $50,000 that, we prepared is still in the rough budget,” the Deputy of FFTL, Secretary General Frederico Martins, told Tatoli on this wednesday.

He explained that the $50,000 which is deposited by FFTL is still temporary and this will change according to the price of the air plane ticket because the U-23 soccer players will have the training camps in Japan and South Korea after departing to Vietnam in may to participate in the Sea Games match.

In a different place, the General Secretary of CONTL, Laurentino Guterres is  proud of the FFTL’s decision to facilitate the U-23 soccer players to participate in the Sea Games Games in Vietnam without using government ‘s funds.

“We are proud of the FFTL ‘s decision because they can facilitate the U-23 soccer players to train abroad before visiting Vietnam to participate in the Sea Games,” the   Secretary General of CONTL, Laurentino Guterres said.

Laurentino Guterres really appreciates the FFTL because by training abroad the U-23 football players will be able to prepare physically, tactically and mentally before participating in the Sea Games match in Vietnam.

The U-23 soccer players who have been selected by FFTL to participate in the SEA Games in Vietnam are more than 20 persons.
