Sierra Leone Sports: 13 Premier League clubs meet with PBL

Thirteen Premier League Clubs, on Thursday 1st November 2018, met with the newly constituted Sierra Leone Premier League Board. Unfortunately, the earlier promise to start playing Premier League football in November has changed. They all agreed to schedule the commencement of the league for first week December 2018, as the Board is currently trying to raise money from Government of Sierra Leone and private corporate entities. After fruitful deliberations of pertinent issues relating to a professional implementation of rules and regulations, club license, technical and match officiating, the clubs agreed to incrementally implement the 2012 Hotel Barmoi Declaration that seeks to improve football governance in Sierra Leone. And in a bid to organize and run a well-structured professional Premier League, the Premier League Clubs further agreed to implement the following resolutions:

  • All premier league clubs are to be incorporated and run as a company under the laws of Sierra Leone.
  • All Premier League clubs shall register a verifiable executive/management to run their affairs.
  • All clubs must hire the services of a licensed A coach to manage/coach them.
  • All clubs shall enter a contractual agreement with their players thereby abiding to various labour laws in Sierra Leone.
  • All clubs shall have a verifiable bank account with a reputable commercial bank in Sierra Leone.
  • All clubs shall endeavor to establish a youth team that will help in the development of young players.
