The game was not encouraged under the Taliban regime from 1996 to 2001. At present Afghanistan has low level of participation in football due to lack of funds and security problems inside the country. Despite this, Afghanistan's Olympic Football Team made to the final of (2010 South Asian Games)after winning all its matches in the group stage against India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan and winning its semi-final clash against Maldives.
