It is no longer new that Sierra Leone Timber Businessman Babadi Kamara, can be called the saviour of Sierra Leone football following his appointment as Team manager of Leone Stars, Chairman of Bo Rangers Football club including how he facilitated the construction of the 6,000 Capacity Southern Arena Stadium.

Kamara has indeed evolved as a leading figure in Sierra Leone Football; that with just over three years none of the Bo Rangers Football club players would be disappointed. With each passing Sierra Leone premier League competitions, Kamara weighs in with announcements of increased cash prizes and now the players are seeing the money signs.

Under his watch, Kamara has constructed the first ultra-modern clubhouse for Bo Rangers players, an investment which is unprecedented in Sierra Leone Football.

Before Babadi Kamara, there were low transfer fee for Sierra Leone footballers but in 2021, this changed rapidly as he made the first record transfer deal valued at about 225,000,000 for striker, Musa Noah Kamara from East End Lions FC.

As he rises from rags to riches, there have been questions about his source of income and wealth but Babadi is more committed to the development of Sierra Leone Football and remains unperturbed by distractions.

He recently said that ‘’On a Sunday and under the hot burning sun I am here working for my country. The short term objective of my work is to ensure our most loved National Team Leone Stars play their next qualifying match here in Sierra Leone instead of going to neighbouring countries with no home advantage which mostly count against us. I can’t be distracted by any blog against my personality for I know my inner self’’

Meanwhile, Sierra Leone Football suffered a serious setback when CAF announced on Saturday 27th February 2021, the banning the use of the Siaka Steven Stadium in Freetown for the use of international matches

According to sources, the continent’s football governing body took the action against Sierra Leone due to the poor facilities of the stadium which has been the main venue for all international matches since the structure was constructed in 1979.

It seems his dream of making Leone Stars host its upcoming 2023 AFCON Qualifying matches is on the verge of coming a reality. Pure bliss and pulsating thrills must be coursing through Babadi Kamara as the Sierra Leone Leone Football Association on Thursday, February 2nd 2023, sent a high-powered delegation to conduct CAF Mandated inspections on his Southern Arena Stadium in a bid to secure CAF approval of the facility and the possibility of hosting international matches and regional competitions.

After the inspection, the Vice President of SLFA stated that he was highly impressed with the stadium facility. He congratulated Babadi Kamara for setting up such ‘’a magnificent playing facility’’ in the Southern part of the country which is needed to secure much-needed CAF approval to be hosting international matches and zonal tournaments.

This development will indeed mark a new turn for Sierra Leone football….
The General Secretary of the FA, Christopher Kamara also stated that they have done their own parts, it now for CAF to decide.

In his reaction, owner of the facility CEO Babadi Kamara added that he constructed the facility as his support towards the development of Sierra Leone Football.

Philanthropy is second nature to Kamara. Ever since he made good in business before he entered football administration, he made it a focal objective to give back to humanity.
