African Beach Soccer Union Inaugurates Standing Committees

The African Beach Soccer Union (ABSU) at the weekend inaugurated its five Standing Committees.

ABSU, a young body focused on the promotion and development of Beach Soccer, held the event virtually and featured over 40 participants from member countries across Africa.

All appointees were sworn in after concurrently taking part in the oath-taking ceremony.

In his speech, Mr Mamud Hadejia, the President of the Union, tasked the newly sworn-in committee members to display strong friendship, tolerance and dedication in the call to serve the continent.

He further stressed that one of the main goals of the union is to improve on the technical aspect of the game while advising all to leverage on existing beach soccer structures laid by the national associations in their various countries.

“A core objective is also to improve the technical ability of players, coaches, referees and administrators in both genders of the sport,” Hadejia told the appointees during the event.

“It remains key as part of our developmental agenda to build on the established foundation for a strong Beach Soccer culture in Africa.”
