Grass roots development is the key to success in football. No country has excelled in football without having a strong grass roots programme. With that in mind, the All Nepal Football Association established the ANFA Academy in 1995,
The ANFA Academy at Satdobato, ever since its establishment, has been grooming players that have made the country proud in international arena. The Academy scouts new talents from all over the country to breed them into fine footballers.
There are currently 28 youngsters living in the academy in the U-15 age category. ANFA also has technical centres in Chyasal, Butwal and Dharan.
