The Sierra Leone Football Association, SLFA will receive financial aid from the Confederation of African Football from the $10.8 million fast-track support to all 54 members association.
The funds are a part of CAF’s annual grants to its member association.
CAF confirmed the news after Thursday’s video meeting held by the CAF emergency committee. The financial aid is to support the management of football at the domestic levels hugely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
A total of USD 10.8 Million will be transferred to the 54 MA’s on the continent as part of a relief plan to ease the financial burden on the African football community during these unprecedented times.
Due to the fast-spread of COVID-19, African MA’s have suspended all domestic competitions, which has brought about huge financial burdens on their shoulders.
CAF has thus decided to wave the eligibility requirements to access the annual grants, so all MA’s can benefit during this difficult period,” said CAF President Ahmad Ahmad.
