Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG) Announces the Launch of FootGolf in Kazakhstan.


The Federation International FootGolf (FIFG) is thrilled to announce the official launch of

FootGolf in Kazakhstan. This significant milestone marks the beginning of a new era for sports enthusiasts in Kazakhstan, as FootGolf combines the precision and strategy of golf with the dynamic and engaging elements of football.



President's Statement


Speaking at the launch event, FIFG President Aleksander Kravanja expressed his excitement about the introduction of FootGolf in Kazakhstan. "I am honoured to be here today to celebrate this momentous occasion. Over the past three days, we conducted a

comprehensive inspection visit and consulted with key stakeholders in numerous meetings. The enthusiasm and commitment to Footgolf we have witnessed here are truly inspiring, I express my gratitude to the President of the Kazakhstan FootGolf Federation (KFGF), Yerbol Bukharbayev, and his outstanding team to develop FootGolf in this beautiful country" he said.


Opportunities and Development


The launch includes integrating FootGolf into several premier golf courses across Kazakhstan, providing a unique and enjoyable experience for players of all ages and skill

levels. The FIFG has also studied and discussed different models for integrating FootGolf

into existing golf courses, ensuring both sports can coexist harmoniously and maximize the

use of these facilities.


In addition to existing golf courses, the FIFG is committed to developing new Urban

FootGolf courses. These courses will make the sport more accessible to a broader

audience, particularly in densely populated areas, fostering community engagement and

encouraging physical activity.


Kazakhstan as a Regional Hub


Kazakhstan will be the connecting member country to develop the Central Asian region.

This strategic role highlights Kazakhstan's leadership and commitment to expanding

FootGolf across neighbouring countries. As a central hub, Kazakhstan will facilitate regional

cooperation, share best practices, and drive the growth of FootGolf throughout Central

Asia.
