The Chairman of the Premier League Board (PLB) Alpha Timbo said that there is no way they would fail in their task of organizing the Premier League as the word impossible is not in their Vocabulary.
He went on to state that Sierra Leone is a small country and that should never prevent them from aiming higher.
He also stated that during the league there were major constraints that the PLB members faced, but there were always solutions.
Timbo stated that along the way, they encountered various administrative and technical hurdles at the start; they also observed that most of the clubs did not have permanent addresses, especially the major clubs.
He also revealed that in this age of information technology, only one of the 14 clubs have a website and without email addresses it was difficult for the premier League secretariat to communicate with clubs speedily.
Upon these grounds, he thanked Comium for facilitating telephone communication among premier league clubs, the board and the Sierra Leone Football Association.
He also revealed that the lack of proper sports structures in the regions for the promotion of football nationwide posed serious challenges for the organizers.
Giving an example, he said the playing grounds all over the country are in deplorable state and insufficient to facilitate effective start and completion of home and away competitions on record time.
He said what they what to see in the future are clubs embracing the spirit of entrepreneurship by building their own stadiums, start an aggressive marketing campaign and organized communications network.
Chairman Timbo said that priority should not only be focus on the construction of multi purpose ultra modern sports Stadiums which could be very expensive but properly designed football fields that are fenced with a capacity of about 10,000 spectators minimum.(i.e. a Pavilion to accommodate about 500 and open terracing or stand to accommodate about 9,500 spectators)
He said that Government, through its local councils and other development partners, could spearhead such projects which, with proper management, could be revenue making enterprises.
He also stated that the existing relationship problem between the ministry of Education, the National Sports Council and the SLFA; they are trying to resolved the matter once and for all for the good of the game.
Timbo also disclosed that most clubs find it very difficult to compete effectively because of lack of sponsorship. The board, as part of its vision, will be approaching some of the cooperate institutions to sponsor the clubs.
