By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Under 16 Belize Men’s National Team (U16 BMNT) arrived in Frankfurt, Germany on Wednesday and are making their way to Albania on Thursday for an international tournament under the banner of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

“Football provides our young boys and girls the opportunity to travel and learn while playing the sport they love,” the FFB said in a social media post.

Just before midday (6:00 pm Germany time), Technical Director at the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) Philip Marin said the members of the U16 BMNT were doing well and were taking a flight to Albania within two hours. The U16 BMNT will compete in the UEFA U16 Youth Development Tournament in Tirana, Albania from March 2-7 against San Marino, Kosovo, and Albania.

Marin said UEFA organizes the tournament for the lower ranked European teams. UEFA extended the invitation to Concacaf which in turn invited the FFB.

Belize will be playing against Albania on Saturday, March 2 at the House of Football Stadium in Tirana. The second game will be against San Marino on Monday, March 4. The final match will be against Kosovo on Thursday, March 7.

The U16 BMNT left Belie on Tuesday, February 27, by road to Guatemala City on the first leg of their trip. On Wednesday, February 28, they took a flight from Guatemala City to Mexico City where they boarded another flight to Frankfurt.

The FFB contingent consists of 20 players and eight technical staff members. (See list below.)

The European tournament is part of the preparation the U16 BMNT is undergoing for their participation in the UNCAF U16 Men’s Championship to be held in Costa Rica in June and the Concacaf Championship U16 Boys Qualifiers in August.
