JOCHEN FIGGE, 2022 - BELIZE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION, BELIZE
The German Football Ambassador 2022 supports the Belize Football Association with his prize money - in particular the promotion of youth leagues, women's football and the education and training of coaches.
As a DFB foreign expert, DOSB, FIFA coach and technical advisor, Jochen Figge has been active on five different continents. He has been involved in countless countries from Nepal to Papua New Guinea, from Zambia to Trinidad-Tobago through the International Sports Promotion of the Federal Foreign Office. Figge started 40 years ago in Guinea as a coach and “football development worker” and was only stopped in 2020 by the Corona pandemic in Belize.
With his prize money and the support of the Belize Football Association, he wants to specifically promote youth football, including the further expansion of youth leagues, as well as support for coaches and women’s football. Jochen Figge knows the structures and the people involved, so the right approach to support is guaranteed.
