The Liberia Football Association (LFA) has donated 30 Puma footballs each to all 1st and 2nd Division clubs to help ease the financial burden on stakeholders for the ongoing season.

Spearheading the presentation in Congo Town, LFA 2nd Vice President Saye Adolphus Dolo thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the donation of the footballs and embraced the sacrifices that stakeholders endured for the development of football in Liberia.
‘’We want to thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the donation of 6,000 Puma footballs and we remained very grateful to stakeholders for the numerous sacrifices you made to develop football,’’ Dolo said.
Dolo was speaking to stakeholders in an LFA Connect Work Section before the distribution of the footballs and he also used the opportunity to take aim at those who criticized Lone Star following their 3-1 loss to Ghana in a friendly.
The 2nd Vice President was characteristically soft but sounded upset while responding to some football fans who made competitive analysis with Liberia and other National Teams across Africa.
‘’I want to thank the Lone Star even though we lost yesterday and I pray for their safe arrival.
‘’We played Ghana, a country whose 2023/24 Sports budget is 23M and what is our budget…when we make these competitive analyses we should ask ourselves,’’ Dolo bemoaned.
‘’We go out there blaming the FA for everything but we don’t realize that if we don’t buy books and feed our kids at home, we shouldn’t expect them to do remarkably well, it’s not possible.
‘’All the LFA does is to ensure that the beautiful game plays but if the clubs don’t do well; you blame the LFA,’’ Dolo bemoaned.
