2010 earthquake[edit]

The federation, which had struggled financially for years, lost all but two of its more than 30 officials during the 2010 earthquake.[1] Also because of the earthquake, the national stadium's field, as well as many other stadiums, were converted to used as housing for survivors and refugees in makeshift tents.[1][2] Due to the financial and personal losses of the federation, large financial sums were donated by FIFA and globally–high-ranking individuals within the sport, as well as a $3 million fund for rebuilding infrastructure that had been created by FIFA.[1]
