Two days following their historic win against Al-Hilal in the first leg of the 2018 CAF Champions League preliminary, Liberia’s double champions LISCR FC have launched their official club website.
The informative website, www.liscrfc.com, was launched yesterday by the club’s media officer, T. Kla Wesley, who also manages the website. The website provides the latest information about the club, videos, staff and fixtures, and results among others.
“Launching our website is a major boost for us as an organization and especially a top tier club in Liberia. This is very vital in modern football. Via the website, the club and the public will be able to easily interact and regularly access information about the club,” Wesley said. “Very soon, we will get our fans to register on the site. Supporters home and abroad need to be part of the club and the website is one tool to use to get to them.”
Over the years, the club has been providing their latest information to their supporters via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
LISCR, a Gardnersville based club, was founded in August 1995 and have won the Liberia Football Association FA Cup three times and the Liberia Super Cup twice.
