Burundi has become the 100th country to implement FIFA's Football for Schools program. The program aims to make football more accessible to young people by incorporating it into the education system. Supported by UNESCO, it has reached around 700 million children worldwide. The inauguration event took place at the Urunani Stadium in Buganda and was attended by FIFA President Gianni Infantino. The program has distributed 1.5 million footballs since its launch in 2019 and more than 23 million children are using the Football for Schools app.
