The Peruvian Football association (FPF) has inaugurated its sixth sports complex in Pucallpa in the country’s north-east. FPF President Manuel Burga attended the complex’s official opening on 10 April. “This is an excellent opportunity to give the 400,000 inhabitants of Pucallpa a facility where they can learn the values and principles of football, not just the game itself but also team spirit, loyalty and fair play,” said FIFA development officer Harold Mayne-Nicholls. The sports centre is the fourth Goal project to have been completed in Peru. The complex was built on an area of 5.7 hectares and will initially comprise a water tank of 120 m3, two dressing rooms and two football pitches with watering technology and drainage channels.
