FIFA approves US$50,000 for women’s lower league development

FIFA has approved US$50,000 to the Liberia Football Association (LFA) for its women’s lower league development.

The LFA applied to FIFA women’s development program for the funds in March 2021.

The LFA divided US$13,920 among the 11 clubs in the lower women’s division (US$1,160 per club) as assistance for players’ transportation for training and rental of buses to honor league games.

The rest of the funds will be used for several activities towards the development of the league under the supervision of the women’s football committee headed by executive committee member Jodie Reid-Seton.

They include marketing and administrative seminars for personnel of clubs, refresher courses for coaches, refresher and training courses for old and new female referees, indemnities for referees, and payment of stipends to former female players who have turned to coaches and continuous coaching education for former female players engaged with clubs.

At the end of the league, recipients of the FIFA women’s football development funds must report to the LFA through the reporting policies and standards.
