A handout photograph taken on January 12, 2013 and released on January 16 by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team, shows members of the Somali Football Federation (SFF) walking across the football pitch inside Baanadir Stadium in the Abd-Aziz District of the Somali capital Mogadishu. The field that has recently been re-surfaced with a new artificial playing surface funded by FIFA, the SFF with repair work to begin on the seats, parking and facilities of the 7,500-capacity stadium. After two decades of near-constant conflict, Somalia is enjoying its longest period of peace and growing security since the Al-Qaeda-allied violent extremist group Al Shabaab was driven from Mogadishu in August 2011. Under the Shabaab's draconian rule, social pastimes and sports such as football were banned but residents of the city and elsewhere across Somalia.
