The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has embarked on field inspections across the country as they are preparing to execute the construction of four new pitch projects.

Eden Grass which is the preferred pitch construction company of SLFA has concluded the final field inspection exercise to kick start the field construction projects in Freetown, Port Loko, Kono, Bo, and Kenema.

Vice President 1 of the SLFA, Harold Nat-Johnson, a team lead of senior executives at SLFA, accompanied the Netherland-based contractors- Mark Jonkers and team- and supervised the exercise to ensure the full readiness of the sites as the construction work gets underway.

The said projects, upon completion, will see a full package of a state of the art artificial turf, floodlight, perimeter fence, 100KVA generator, and 100-seater pavilion at the SLFA Academy Field, Approved School Field, Port Loko Town Field, and Bo Coronation Field.

The project will also see the renovation of the Kono field with a perimeter fence and floodlights while the Kenema Town Field, which is already fenced, will be upgraded with standard floodlights.

The announcement by the Sierra Leonean FA came as the country wraps up its top tier national league. With the construction of perimeter fence, the project will principally discourage pitch invasion by fans which has been a thorn during the 2022-23 league campaign.
