“So many years in the past, we played our official matches only in the capital, but now things have changed and a new dawn of progress has emerged. I take this opportunity to thank the president of the Republic of Djibouti, his excellence Ismail Omar Guelleh for doing everything in his capacity to help us promote the game throughout the country” Djiboutian FA president, Souleiman Hassan Waberi said.

On his part, Secretary of State for youth and sport, Mr. Hassan Mohamed Kamil, said that Djiboutian football has taken a big step forward and more other steps will follow soon.
