Ibrahim Jalloh, a Sierra Leonean businessman residing in Conakry, Guinea has donated 2 full sets of football kits (25 each) to all participating Premier League Clubs as his contribution towards the commencement of the premier league, which has been dormant since 2014.
The gesture was made possible through the silent hard working SLFA Acting President, Brima Mazola Kamara and PLB member, James Fofanah.
At a mock presentation held at the SLFA Secretariat, the donor expressed his willingness to always support football in the country; noting also that replica jerseys of the same quality for supporters will be produced on request from clubs at a cost recovery price.
"This is the beginning of a very long journey between us as a company and the SLFA. We will do our utmost best to give the clubs high quality produce and ensure that we partner with the PLB as and when necessary," Ibrahim Jalloh says.
Responding on behalf of the FA, the Acting President thanked Mr Jalloh for what he described as "timely and a step in the right direction".
He encouraged clubs to make good use of the supporters jersey opportunity as it would help them increase their revenue generation drive.
13 clubs were represented at the mock presentation and all present expressed their sincere gratitude to Mr Jalloh and promised to make good use of the supporters' jerseys opportunity.
The occasion was climaxed by the display of sample jerseys of the various premier league clubs.
