At the ceremony, Shan State Social Affairs Minister Dr MyoTun gave the opening address. It was followed by speeches by Mr Scot Marciel and U KoKoThein.
U KoKoThein said that the aim of the Community Champions Football Clinic is to combat the menace of drugs through sports.

He then spoke about the grassroots football clinics held annually across Myanmar, and upcoming agendas for the football program to be held by the MFF next year in collaboration with the Embassy of the United States in Myanmar.
Next, officials opened the ceremony by kicking the balls.
Eighty students from Shan State participated in the football program.
Trainers and coaches shared football tactics and skills with them.
