President George Weah on Tuesday dedicated the newly built SDK Practice Pitch in Paynesville.
The project was funded by FIFA and implemented by the Liberia Football Association (LFA).
Speaking at the dedication ceremony, President George Weah thanked FIFA for its continuous support to develop football globally and lauded the LFA leadership, headed by Mustapha Raji for the leadership role at the association.
President Weah reaffirmed the government’s commitment to continue its advocacy to ensure that additional sporting facilities are developed in the country so that Liberia can host international competitions in the future.
“ I will speak with my colleagues on the continent not to impose but to appeal to them to see the need to support Liberia in a bid to host the Continent’s biggest sporting event, the Nation’s cup,” President Weah said.
LFA President Raji thanked the Liberian leader for his continuous support and cooperation from the government’s sports ministry towards the development of football in the country.
He also thanked member clubs for the support and their approval of the football association’s budget that allows the association to implement projects.
The minis-stadium comprises an artificial turf, seating capacity, dressing room and a medical room.
