The Kunduz Regional Tournament took place from May 18th through May 21th in the Municipality Football stadium in capital city of Kunduz. Four teams from four different provinces in the northeast region participated in the tournament: Kunduz, Badakhshan, Takhar, and Baghlan. Some of these players have to travel from their respective villages and districts under very difficult circumstances to be able to fulfill their passion for Football.
Thousands of passionate football fans turned out for the Kunduz Regional tournament to select players for “Mawjhai Amu” team. People had travelled from as far as Badakhshan, Kunduz, Takhar and Baghlan to cheer up their teams. The atmosphere was very festive with fans playing drums and the large participation of the public displayed the overwhelming passion for football that exists in the region. Some of the players, encouraged by the league’s successive seasons over the last two years as well as inspired by the achievements of the national team, exhibited impressive football skills that can provide a great pool of selection for the national team in the future.
AFF officials selected the 26 best players from these four teams based on their skills and performance. Those players will be further narrowed down to 21 players during an Intra-Squad match on July 10th. The 26 players will be divided into two teams to play against each other. The 21 players selected by AFF officials from that match will be the final list of players officially representing the Northeast region and “Mawjhai Amu”.
