LFA to Construct Mini Grassroots Pitches in Grand Cape Mount, Grand Gedeh, Maryland

Ongoing construction work on the seating capacity at the technical center in Careysburg

-As Executive Committee Approves several developmental projects

By Anthony Kokoi

Grand Cape Mount, Grand Gedeh and Maryland counties are set to each receive a mini grassroots pitch.

This follows after the Liberia Football Association (LFA) approved new developmental projects during its Executive Committee Meeting on September 11, 2020.

Similar to the one to be constructed in Montserrado, the 25X45 meters mini grassroots pitch will be used for football and futsal. 

The mini pitch projects are part of the FA’s effort and commitment to develop grassroots football — one of its key components of its development programs and also geared towards the decentralization of football.

The football house’s executive committee also approved the installment of artificial turfs at the Willis D. Knuckles Stadium in Montserrado, David Kuyon Stadium in Bong, Gompa Stadium in Nimba and Voinjama Stadium in Lofa Counties. 

Additionally, the executive committee approved the replacement of the artificial turfs at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Montserrado County and the Nancy B. Doe Stadium in Margibi County.  

Other developmental projects approved include the roofing of the stadia at the George Weah technical center in Careysburg, the SKD practice pitch and Tusa field in Montserrado County.

The FA has for the past months continued other projects, including refurbishing of the Tusa Field, Technical Center, SKD Practice pitch and the re-roofing of the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.


    • We talking about Football, when was the last time a good footballer came from Lofa? hahahahaha The only good thing that can come from Lofa is “big butt women” that i know!!!!

      • Wornor,

        Man, move from here mehn. That only the “big butt” you see on the women from Lofa?

        What carry your eye on that side? Bad man


  1. Maryland county couldn’t have been left out! Not sounding like the Montserrado county lawmaker, I will say this….if Maryland county had been left out, there would have been a tug of war! Why? Thy county of Maryland is a county of hope and perennial prosperity. In fact, I think the projects should commence in the county of Maryland. No arguments please! Let’s get on with it and address our patriotic duties.


  2. Wait a minute,, you say what, Artificial Turfs??? With that Rich Soil that God gave us Liberians, and we are talking about some kind of Turfs…

    What is wrong with growing carpet grass in that Rich soil that our children, children, children will enjoy for centuries or decades to come…

    Oooh black people especially Liberians why do we like to enrich others? We have this rich land and soil and yet people talking planting ARTIFICIAL TURFS… What is that? ???
