Liberia: CAF President Lifts Ban on SKD Complex


MONROVIA — The president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Patrice Motsepe has overturned the ban or suspension on the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex.

The CAF president lifted and canceled the ban when he and the president of the Federation International Football Association (FIFA) Gianni Infantino paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Youth and Sports D. Zeogar Wilson at his Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex Office in Paynesville today.

The CAF president said the ban on Liberia is a complete embarrassment to him as the president of CAF and to Liberia as well.

According to Patrice Motsepe, it is not the time for such decision but to rather work with Liberia to solve the challenges.

He said that CAF is prepared to work with Liberia to improve sports in the country, especially football and infrastructure.

Minister Wilson lauded the President of CAF Patrice Motsere for the support. He appealed to the president of the Federation of International Football Association, Gianni Infantino for a new soccer pitch for Liberia because the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex has overlived it’s capacity.

In response to Minister Wilson’s appeal, FIFA President, Gianni Infantino said, FIFA is here to do whatever it takes to improve sports in Liberia.
