The General Secretary of the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA), Christopher Kamara, has taken an inspection tour of the national stadium ahead of the final AFCON qualifier match between Sierra Leone and Benin.
The stadium was earlier banned by CAF from hosting AFCON matches, but interventions made by the SLFA president resulted in its reversal.
Touring the stadium, Kamara said that he was so far impressed with the work the stadium’s management had put in place, making references to security personnel deployed around the stadium and the constant protection of the field.
“With what I have seen so far from Paul Damulay, I believe that our final AFCON match with Benin will be played in a conducive environment,” he added.
In response, stadium manager Paul Damulay described the inspection as timely, and that management will do all its best to ensure that the national stadium is protected amid trying challenges.
As per cushioning the constraints listed by manager Damulay, the General Secretary of SLFA asked that the stadium management put together a budget covering logistical needs and present it to him for financial assistance.
Accompanied by the General Secretary were the Director of Corporate Affairs, Mohamed Benson Bawoh; NSA representative, Alie Sesay; SLFA Media and Communications Officer, Lamin Tarawalie.
