The Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF), in cooperation with the Ethio-German Football and in the presence of the Cultural Attaché of the Embassy, held a closing ceremony of a high level coaching course for 66 coaches of the U17 and U20 Ethiopian Premier Leagues and coaches from the Regional Football Federation Addis Ababa.

The course took place between 6th and 10th of March 2017 in the National Stadium of Addis Ababa.                     

The goals served to update the elite youth coaches on recent tactical developments in modern football and how to conduct performance-oriented trainings for Ethiopia’s football talents in order to be able to respond with the demands of the football of today and tomorrow. The course has been conducted by Joachim Fickert, Director of the Ethio-German Football Project, and Daniel Gebramariam, Education Desk Head of the Technical Department of the EFF.

Since 2013, the German Foreign Office, in cooperation with the German Football Association (DFB) has been seconding a permanent football consultant to the Ethiopian Football Federation. Since the inception of this “Ethio-German Football Project”, more than 25 courses have been conducted, each time equipping around 40 coaches from Ethiopia’s male and female elite leagues in modern football training skills. The long-term goal of this project is to contribute to the further development of Ethiopia’s football sector, also with a view to raise the international competitiveness of Ethiopia’s leading football players.
