The President of the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA), Thomas Daddy Brima on Thursday joined Collegue Member Association at the BK Arena in Kigali, Rewanda in re-electing Gianni Infantino at the 73rd FIFA Congress.

Today, we shall unanimously establish a renewed leadership for a brighter future in global football,” President Brima stated on his Twitter page

Gianni Infantino was re-elected as FIFA president during the 73rd Congress in Kigali on Thursday, promising record revenues in the next four-year cycle of $11 billion as he called for more football to be played around the world.

The 52-year-old Swiss-Italian lawyer stood unopposed, making his re-election as head of football’s governing body a formality, even if he is not universally popular among member associations amid controversies including the treatment of migrant workers in the run-up to last year’s World Cup in Qatar and a failed plan to play the tournament every two years.
