The Asian Football Confederation (AFC), under the AFC League Development Programme, staged the first-ever Media and Commentator Workshop in the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar which concluded on 6th of August.
More than 30 members of the Mongolian Football Federation, the Mongolian Premier League, Mongolian Premier League clubs and national television and media attended the workshop in the Mongolian Football Federation headquarters.
The workshop, opened by MFF General Secretary Shijir Ulziikhuu, covered the key areas of communications, media management and, with the experienced and much-respected Asian football commentary expert Dez Corkhill, television production and commentary.
In closing the workshop, MFF President, Ganbaatar Amgalanbaatar, said: ‘This has been an extremely important week for Mongolian football as the public absorb our great game through television and the media.
The workshop participants not only had the opportunity to create media plans for the promotion of the clubs but also the national commentators were given live training during a Mongolian Premier League game at the MFF headquarters.
Dez Corkhill added: ‘There is great potential in Mongolia and the commentators understood the need to celebrate football as well as inform the public. This workshop has been a great success and I know all the participants have left better informed and better prepared than ever before.’ (the-afc.com)
