The CAF Emergency Committee has lifted the ban on the Sierra Leone National Stadium.

In an official correspondence to the Sierra Leone Football Association by CAF dated the 10th March, 2021, the CAF Emergency Committee has, “based on the covid-19 pandemic and current travel restrictions”, decided to exceptionally lift the ban on the Siaka Steven Stadium and allow only the remaining AFCON 2021 Qualifiers (match-day 5 and 6) to be played.

The decision went on to state that after the above-mentioned match-days, Sierra Leone’s playing territory “will automatically again be removed from the list of CAF approved stadiums and will not be available for selection on CAF Competition Management System”.

The SLFA President has confirmed that she is engaging in talks with the appropriate CAF officials who will visit Sierra Leone with a view of advising the Ministry of Sports on the improvement of stadium technical infrastructures which will meet with CAF/FIFA competition standards for future matches.
