HAVANA, Sept 14 (NNN-PRENSA LATINA) -- The national soccer federations of Cuba and Brazil have signed an agreement here to collaborate in the sponsoring of the International Soccer Associations Federation (FIFA).

Walter Fieldman, the president of the governing body of football in Brazil, Jair Bertoni, the FIFA director of member federations for the Americas, and Jesus Pereira, the Secretary-General of the Cuban F.A., signed the agreement which will run for four years.

Bertoni highlighted the importance of this project for the development of football in Cuba, and stressed that it is the first between two federations under the auspices of FIFA.

The strategy consists of the transmission of knowledge by a country with a huge tradition like Brazil to support the growth of the discipline in Cuba and a first course for coaches of the lower categories is already being offered with the objective of starting training from the basic starts.

Fieldman was optimistic with the concretion of this idea, in which he sees a promising future both for Cuba in order to improve his football, and for Brazil in the transmission of experiences and good practices.

Bertoni assured a positive future for Cuban football as part of the signing of a collaboration agreement. -- NNN-PRENSA LATINA
