* Berbera was quoted in Somali-speaking media outlets as being the 5th Host City, but never officially confirmed by ConIFA as being one of the Host Cities. There are 4 ‘football sites’ in Berbera, 2 of which ‘training sites’ are below sizes mandated by IFAB for Adult XI-a-side games. Of the 2 larger areas: the western site lacks a playing surface, or any top-soil; the eastern site lacks any substrate provision, being composed of artificial grass strips laid down onto the ground, after being steamrollered and tamped-down.
