The formation of National Youth Teams began from December 2013. Currently, National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam has 3 national age group teams and term as ‘National Youth Teams’. There are NFABD Under-14, NFABD Under-17 and NFABD Under-20. NFABD Youth Teams provide elite players with a systematic elite youth development training programme as part of NFABD Strategic Plan. NFABD has also expanded the Under 12 Centre of Excellence (COE) for our Brunei Muara District, Tutong District, Kuala Belait District and Temburong District.

National Youth Coaches are selected from our NFABD Coach Education programs which started since January 2014. Coaches selected for our National Youth Teams are certified with AFC coaching certificate.

We are housed in our own building at the Jalan Pusat Persidangan, Bandar Seri Begawan, the entire operation is geared towards producing players of outstanding football ability as well as aiding their physiological, psychological and academic growth.

The main objectives of the NFABD are:

  • To provide a conducive football training environment, coupled with programmes to assist trainees in their studies.
  • To help players of outstanding ability to develop to their fullest potential.
  • To groom outstanding young players for the Premier League, Super League and eventually to represent Negara Brunei Darussalam.


Mental Skill Training is provided to ensure that the NFABD youth players are grounded in the psychological disciplines even as they are developing their football talent.

The NFABD works closely with the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports to provide the best resources to train the younger generation of our players towards football excellence. The NFABD also offers sports science support with physiology, psychology, nutrition, biomechanics, fitness conditioning and physiotherapy programmes to all our national youth players.

International exposure is an essential part of a footballer’s development, and NFABD regularly sends teams for Invitation Tournament, International Competitions and Team for Overseas training opportunities.
