Woiwor FC Transitions to Paynesville Athletico Warriors FC

Paynesville, Liberia – Following series of consultations with partners, players, technical staff, and administrators, Woiwor Football Club is now Paynesville Athletico Warriors Football Club.

The official decision of renaming was reached on September 11, 2023, in Paynesville at the climax of a daylong retreat followed by a certification of players and technical staff.

Woiwor FC now Paynesville Athletico Warriors FC will be making its debut in the 3rd division for the 2023/2024 League Season after an overwhelming performance during the last edition of the league which earned them a promotion.

A senior member of the club, N’Dar Gonqueh, told sports journalists at the climax of the retreat that the reason behind the change of name is to create avenue for more partners to come on board.

He said they want to change the way football clubs struggle when their owners dies, noting that such initiative will open avenue for other investment.

“If an individual own a club and he or she dies, definitely, the club will start to struggle or on the other hand, the regular support stop coming. In the case of ours and most especially with the new dispensation of football, we officially transition from Woiwor Football Club to Paynesville Athletico Warriors Football Club as means of encouraging more partners and creating openness for everyone to come on board, Mr. Gonqueh narrated”.

Also speaking to journalists, the head Coach of Paynesville Athletio Warriors FC, Tommy Saha Lusine said, the move to changed the name of the club will bring more partners on board and help improve results in the future.

“I love the decision that we took because it is just very difficult for a club to survive with a support of an individual. The change of name means a lot for us and it will help to encourage more partners and support base will also improve.”
