This initiative, part of FIFA+, was launched in 2022 to help football professionals enhance their digital skills and foster collaboration among key stakeholders.

The visit featured interactions with various UAEFA divisions, including marketing, media, and IT, as well as visits to Al Nasr Club and Al-Wasl Stadium to gain practical experience — all designed to enhance collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Mohamed Hussein Mohamud said: “This visit has solidified our commitment to improving football in Somalia. The knowledge and experiences we've gained here are invaluable."

Abdirashid Mohamud Nor added: "The exchange of ideas and strategies during our meetings has been enlightening. We look forward to implementing these new insights to further our football initiatives."

Mohammed Abdullah Hazzam Al Dhaheri, General Secretary of UAEFA, commented: "Congratulations to the Somali Football Federation for winning the FIFA Digital Skills Award. We were honoured to welcome you to Dubai and are confident this visit will enrich both our organisations. Together, we can continue to advance the beautiful game of football."

This collaboration exemplifies the global spirit of football, where knowledge sharing and mutual support pave the way for collective growth and development.
