Objectives of the FFK

Regarding the objectives of the FFK, the first article of the FFK statutes reads:

"To improve the game of football constantly and promote, regulate and control it throughout the territory of FFK in the light of fair play and its unifying, educational, cultural and humanitarian values, particularly through youth and development programs."

In the last ten years the technical department of FFK has generated many projects and initiatives following her Long Term Development Plans. The FFK Building and Dormitory have been put to optimum use, and in the context of the FIFA Goal Projects a Training Centre and training field with artificial surface have been built. 

The main goals of football development and youth soccer can be summarized as follows:

"To create for the children the opportunity to be introduced to soccer through grassroots activities and small games, resulting in ‘soccer for a lifetime."

  • Talent Program

    In February 2012 Curacao Soccer Academy, a cooperation between FFK and Fundashon Bon Intenshon, opened its door for two selections of 18 talented youth players.
  • Grassroots

    In the past 10 years the FFK has organized youth festivals, talent days and tournaments both centrally and in the region.
  • School project

    At this moment FFK is implementing its School Adoption Plan for football stimulation and development.
  • Gender project

    In the last five years development of football for women and girls has been an important spearhead in the FFK policy.

    Structural cooperation with institutions from abroad is an important condition for the consistency and the continuity of the program.
