Monrovia, Liberia – (African Boulevard News) – Liberia’s Chief Patron of Sports, President George Manneh Weah, has officially commissioned the newly constructed headquarters of the Liberia Football Association (LFA), the first of its kind since 1936 when the organization was established. The newly constructed facility, named the “LFA Football House,” features modern amenities, including conference rooms, an auditorium, a gym, and offices for the association’s staff.
The commissioning of the headquarters comes as a significant milestone for the LFA, which has long served as the primary force behind the development of football in Liberia.

The LFA President, Mustapha Raji, described the new headquarters as a “dream come true” and a testament to the association’s commitment to developing the sport. He added that the football house would provide a platform for young and talented footballers to showcase their skills and talent.
“The LFA has always been committed to developing the sport of football in Liberia, and the opening of the football house is a clear testament to that commitment,” Mr. Raji said.
The commissioning of the football house comes at a time when the Liberian national football team’s performance has been less than stellar, failing to qualify for major international tournaments. However, stakeholders are optimistic that the new headquarters will provide a fresh impetus to the development of football in the country.
Sports enthusiasts and fans across the country have lauded the opening of the LFA Football House, saying it would boost the development of football, grassroots football management, and administration in Liberia.
