The General Secretary of Europe’s Football Governing body (UEFA), Theodore Theodoridis, arrives in Liberia today, Tuesday, with a two member high powered delegation.
The UEFA delegation will be in Liberia from March 22 to 23 to discuss UEFA’s cooperation with the Liberia Football Association (LFA).
The delegation is headed by Mr. Theodoridis and includes Urs Kluser, Integrity Officer, and Legal Affairs/Disciplinary Services.
A release from the LFA said the two man UEFA delegation will discuss future cooperation with the Liberian FA in all aspects of football development.
The delegation will visit the LFA Technical Center under construction in Careysburg, the future home of the LFA in Congo Town, the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) and pay a courtesy visit to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
The delegation will then join LFA President Musa Hassan Bility and LFA Executives for a discussion before addressing the local football media.
The coming of the UEFA delegation to Liberia followed discussions held between Mr. Bility and the newly elected FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, on the margins of Feburary’s FIFA Congress in Zurich.
The LFA President reportedly played an influential role in deciding the outcome of the FIFA presidential pools.
Mr. Bility is excited about the upcoming visit and said it will help Liberia reach a higher mark in its football development program.
