The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) in partnership with the National Sports Authority (NSA) on Friday 10th July 2020 conducted an inspection tour of the Kenema City Stadium ahead of the commencement of its perimeter fence and floodlight installation project. General Secretary Christopher Kamara, who led the SLFA team, assured the people of Kenema of the FA’s continued commitment to the completion of the Kenema artificial turf installation project.
“The FIFA preferred contractors, Edel Grass are expected to resume work in October 2020, during which the rains would have subsided. We (SLFA) and NSA are, however, jointly planning to commence work on the additional projects (floodlights and perimeter fence), before October this year”. Upon completion, he said Kenema will have one of the best artificial turf pitches in West Africa, including standard floodlight system.
The tour, which was meant to assess the present state of the field in preparation for the start of the additional projects, was also witnessed by Kenema City Mayor Thomas Baio; the Deputy Chairman of the Eastern Region Football Association, Prince Saquee; the Chairman of the Kenema District Football Association, Dennis Ngotho Lansana; and the Chairman of Sports Writers Association Sierra Leone (East), James Jamil Fatormah
