FIFA is to give US$1 million ($964,365) to the South Sudan football federation to help its newest member build a headquarters in capital city Juba.
South Sudan was accepted as the 209th FIFA member in May and played its first recognised international match several weeks later, drawing 2-2 with visiting Uganda to be currently ranked No. 197th.
FIFA says its development committee has granted US$500,000 ($482,168) from Goal Project funds to build offices and a playing surface in Juba.
South Sudan will receive an additional US$500,000 from a fund targeting poorer members to help with 'laying solid foundations for the new organisation'.
South Sudan became officially independent from Sudan in July 2011.
