As it extends across both sides of the Ural River, considered the dividing line with the European continent, Kazakhstan is one of only two landlocked countries in the world that has territory in two continents (the other is Azerbaijan). This is why in Majority of sport federations are happy to have Kazakhstan sportsman’s in their European Federations. For example You can see that Kazakhstan National team is participating in all European Football competitions, and this is why it is logical for Kazakhstan to be also part of A.E.T.F.
Being member of an well organized continental federation will make possible to increase the membership and the total level of organization.
