The Management of East End Lions (E.E. Lions) Football Club has imported a container filled with the required modern equipment and Contractors to build a state-of-the-art Football Pitch at the Trade Centre in the east end of Freetown.
The Club’s Chairman, Amb. Anthony Navo Jr. said: “It’s a new era for East End Lions FC as promised delivered! As premised 2 years ago, I am excited that the shipment/container has arrived in Sierra Leone with the required equipment and contractors to build a state-of-the-art pitch at the Trade Centre.
“Today is the start of this journey and I am delighted to see to this project finally come to fruition – many thanks to everyone – elders, players, fans, executives.
We look forward to seeing the final results! E.E Lions – The Killers”.
Ahead of the Sierra Leone Premier League season 2022/2023, the Club secured the Technical Institute Training field ground commonly referred to as Trade Centre at Ferry Junction.
Chairman Navo Jr., back then promised that to transform the Pitch into an Ultra-Modern Stadium, a promise he has realised yesterday.
This mini stadium used to play the Club’s home matches and serve as a major boost for the Club as fans were yearning for the 12 times Sierra Leone Premier League champions to have their own home ground.
