Deaf National Football Team Protests for Support to Compete in International Tournament

Players of the Liberia Deaf National Football Team staged a continuous demonstration Thur, September 2, 2021 before President Weah’s Foreign Affairs Office in protest of the government’s apparent failure to underwrite the expense of their travel to Kenya.

The Liberia Deaf National Football Team claims that their requests have been rejected and that they are entitled to equal treatment.

The Team is slated to compete in the Confederation of Africa Deaf Sports (CADS) Nations Cup, which will take place in Nairobi, Kenya, on September 12, 2021.

The tournament will serve as Africa’s qualifying event for the 24th Summer Deaflympics Games, which will be held in Brazil from December 5 to 21, 2021.
