The newly promoted 1st division club Heaven Eleven has pulled out of the upcoming LFA National Football League, over what the club described as irregularities in the just ended LFA awards night.
The 2020/2021 Liberia Football Association awards ceremony was held on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at the Ministerial Complex in Congo Town with several football personalities and clubs winning major awards.
Some of the awards that were given during the awards ceremony are: Best referee both male and female, Most Valuable Player both male and female, Best Football Journalist both male and female, Best Defender both male and female, Best Goalkeeper both male females, Best Coach both male and female, Best Fair Play Club, amongst other.
But a communication in position of this medium signed by Heaven Eleven Chief Executive Officer Alvin Poure, mentioned that their goalkeeper Teddy Kollie could have won the best goalkeeper award based on his performances and a number of clean sheets won during the 2020/2021 league season.
According to Mr. Poure, none of the Heaven Eleven players or officials were nominated for the awards,despite being crowned champion of the 2nd Division League.
He added that for a club to win a championship and none of its players or officials are nominated for a major award, he believes that the awards ceremony was not fair and transparent; and as such, his club will not participate in the 2021/2022 league season.
