LFA Honors 2014 Champions Friday

first_imgSeven football clubs from the three divisions of the Liberia Football Association (LFA) are expected to receive 11 crowns on Friday, March 20, at the Blue Field in the PHP Community, Central Monrovia at about 2:30pm.The emerging champions in the 2014 LFA National League are expected to be honored with trophies, medals, certificates and cash prizes.According to statistics, defending 1st division title holder, FC BYC, will be showered with laurels, including a gigantic golden trophy, while runners-up LPRC Oilers will be medaled.For the 2nd division, FC Fassell will also be bathed with honors as the winner, while runners-up Nimba United will be medaled. Both teams have automatically qualified for Division One.The 2nd division champions FC Fassell, pseudonym, Soccer Ambassadors, will further be awarded as Knockout Champions as well as runners-up NPA Anchors.For the female division, all-time winners Earth Angel will receive a circlet as the female giants, and runners-up Senior Pro will be medaled.FC Blanco will be covered with flowers and receive a trophy as the female Knockout Champions and runners-up Earth Angel will be medaled.Also, over 10 players are expected to receive individual awards ranging from the Washington Blay’s Best Defender Award to the George M. Weah’s Most Valuable Player title.The Liberia’s football boss, Musa Bility, in his re-launched monthly press conference on Tuesday, said Chief Patron of Sports President Ellen Sirleaf, Speaker J. Alex Tyler, President Pro Tempore Armah Jallah, some members of the Supreme Court Bench, the diplomatic corps, headships of political parties and some senior Liberians are expected to grace Friday’s ceremony.The official closing program of the 2014 LFA League should have been last year, but the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease deferred the ceremony to Friday, March 20, evidence of the drastically low infection rate.Meanwhile, the 11th coronet would be awarded to the winner after the game between 1st division and knockout champion, which will be played immediately after the honoring program.FC BYC is inarguably the host of the Super Cup since the Blue Field is theirs, which is unprecedented owing to the ongoing renovation of the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS).The match that traditionally births the official opening of the national championship league, the LFA Super Cup, also proves who owns the land. Both sides are highly eager to prove supremacy having bowed out of the CAF competitions in a rather frustrating manner.BYC last weekend fell to their Gambian counterparts 1-0 to be eliminated from the CAF Champions league on a 2-1 aggregate, while Fassell earlier left the CAF affairs on a 3-4 aggregate to their Guinean opponents. The Liberian clubs were compared by CAF to play both legs away from home due to “Ebola.”In spite of the many months of non football activities in Liberia due the Ebola outbreak, our two clubs performed exceptionally in their outing in the CAF competitions to the delight and amazement of thousands. No doubts, similar superb and brilliant artistry of contemporary football will be seen on Friday at the Blue field.The Super Cup match will mark the official opening of the 2015 LFA National League.The league was delayed due to the outbreak of Ebola which constraint the LFA to halt all football activities in Liberia.But some football pundits say the league has also delayed because of the cooperation of the clubs on the CAF’s Club Licensing System.The minimum requirement of the CAF’s Club Licensing System include: legal documentation of the club, bank accounts, administrative structure, players’ pay structure, practice pitch, qualified coaches and a youth development program.Howbeit, Mr. Bility told newsmen on Tuesday that only FC Fassell and BYC have been cleared 100% and certified to participate in the 2015 LFA League.He added that most of the clubs are unable to meet up with the requirement and would be given provision license for a protracted period based on mutual understanding to meet up with the completion of the CAF’s Club Licensing System.The LFA boss indicated that he takes seriously the Club Licensing’s bare minimum requirements before a club is licensed to participate in the league.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
