Freetown, Sierra Leone – In a surprising turn of events, FC Kallon of Sierra Leone has announced a change in venue for their upcoming home game against Dream FC of Ghana in the 2023 TotalEnergies CAF Confederations Club competition, which is scheduled to take place just 11 days from now. The reason behind this change has now been revealed.
The decision to change the venue was prompted by concerns raised by Dream FC of Ghana regarding the considerable distance between Freetown and Bo, Sierra Leone, where the match was originally slated to occur. FC Kallon’s General Manager, Tunde Scott, clarified that Dream FC had expressed apprehension about the logistical challenges posed by the over 200-mile road journey from Freetown to Bo.
Taking these concerns into account, FC Kallon made the decision to relocate the home leg of the match to the SKD Stadium in Liberia, which is presumed to be a more accessible location for Dream FC. This move reflects FC Kallon’s commitment to sportsmanship, even in the face of past concerns about hospitality during their previous visit to Ghana for the first leg match, which they narrowly lost 2-1.
FC Kallon’s General Manager expressed confidence in his team’s ability to stage a comeback and secure victory against Dream FC at the SKD Stadium in Bo, Sierra Leone, with the goal of advancing to the group stage of the competition. He also called upon the people of Sierra Leone and Liberia to rally behind FC Kallon when they host Dream FC on September 30. ARW/19/9/2023
