Iran football federation academy director’s Comment
Mr. Mohd Hossein Alizadeh, academy director
Through the inspections, we were able to understand Japanese football's academy system and their development know-hows. The academy that we run in Iran is subject for 13 years old and under, but going forward, we think it's better to run academy that is subject for every age group.
In the near future, we would like to revisit Japan on exchange programmes for youth players and coaches, developing our partnerships of the professional leagues and associations between the two countries. We would like to express our appreciation for the hospitality.
