Monrovia- The 2023 Awards Committee of the Liberia Football Association has adjusted the date for this year’s event from 6 October to Saturday, 14 October, and announced September 20th as the start date for voting for MVP candidates, Best Defenders, Best coach, and Best Referees.
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 committee member Elizabeth Nyanibo said the change in date was intended to avoid conflict in schedule with the political season.

Miss Nyanibo also mentioned that voting starts today and ends on 5 October.
‘’The Liberia Football Association 2023 Awards official voting starts today [20 September] and will end on Thursday, October 5,’’ Miss Nyanibo concluded.

Meanwhile, LFA Administer its second FIFA football agent examination
The Liberia Football Association (LFA) on Wednesday, 20 September administered the second FIFA Football Agent Examination at its headquarters in Congo Town.
Six candidates sat for the exam and will be directly contacted by FIFA with their results in a week.
Candidates must obtain a score of 75% or higher to pass the exam.
According to FIFA, the introduction of the licensing system is a key component of the FIFA Football Agent Regulations (FFAR) as it raises the professional and ethical standards for the occupation of football agent, thus leading to an increase in the quality of the service that they provide to their clients across the football industry.
The use of licensed football agents will become compulsory from 1 October 2023.
The next exams will be administered in May and September 2024.
