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.[5] Also because of the earthquake, the national stadium's field, as well as many other stadiums, were converted to be used as housing for survivors and refugees in makeshift tents.[5][6] 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.[5]

Camp Nous[edit]

Camp Nous is the Haitian Football Federation operated training centre and academy for Haitian football players in Croix-des-Bouquets. It was inaugurated in May 2012.[7]
