President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has consented to grace Sunday’s knock-out final between defending champions Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) and Invincible Eleven (IE) on Sunday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS).
According to the president of the Liberia Football Association (LFA), President Sirleaf will watch the final before handing out the trophies and medals to the winners and losers.
Musa Bility made the confirmation Tuesday during a press conference held at the ATS.
“The LFA will be given all of the trophies and whatever that is attached to it [knock-out finals]. We extended an invitation to the president of the Republic of Liberia Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and she consented to us to be at the game,” he said.
IE beat Gardnersville while BYC defeated Aries to reach the finals. Before the big match, the two losers will square-off in the third place match.
