The Saudi Arabian Football Federation (SAFF) has signed more partnerships during its time at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with three Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) announced.

Two of these are with other nations who competed at the tournament, Ghana and Ecuador, as well as fellow Asian Football Confederation member, Bangladesh.

SAFF President Yasser Almisehal signed a deal with Ghana Football Association President Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku during a ceremony at Saudi House in Doha, with the main aim to host the Ghanaian national teams for matches and training camps.

There are also to be exchanges for key experts across coaching, refereeing and administrative matters.

Days later, the SAFF agreed an MoU with the Ecuadorian Football Federation (EFF), its first partnership with a member from the South American Football Confederation.

Both organisations are looking to work together on talent identification, refereeing, coaching, technical development, governance, women's football and sports science.

Almisehal and EFF head Francisco Egas met at a signing ceremony, months after the nations drew 0-0 in a friendly in the build-up to the World Cup.

There is also increased collaboration with the Bangladesh Football Federation, whose President Kazi Md Salahuddin made the agreement with the SAFF prior to the FIFA World Cup final.

Youth and women's football are key parts to the partnership, following Bangladesh's recent victory in the Women's South Asian Football Federation Championship.

To date, the SAFF has signed over 20 MoUs with National Federations in football.

Prior to the last three, Saudi Arabia signed an agreement with the national body of Singapore while in Doha.

There is interest from Saudi Arabia to host the 2030 World Cup jointly with Greece and Egypt.
