Fantsl through Fantdk has finally landed the first fourth Generation Artificial Turf in Sierra Leone at its destination in SSCamp. Fantsl is using this turf to upgrade the SSCamp/regent football pitch located almost adjacent the St. Pauls Major Seminary at Regent, Freetown Sierra Leone. This development is not only going to benefit SSCamp and the other communities fantsl operates in but also the country at large because it is believe that when it is completed, the pitch could host some of the local Premier League matches and other major competitions in the country. Also, local youths who want to play football could have the possibility of training on a pitch that can match the European standard.
However, it has not been easy bringing it down here and this became realistic with the relentless effort of Eric Rasmussen, Cecilie Hauerberg and the other board members of Fantdk. We do appreciate all of you whose names and institutions are not mentioned but made tremendous contribution to get the first standard artificial turf in Sierra Leone.
Moreover, the huge task fantsl is now faced with is the preparation of the field before the turf is fix. commmunity members and all other development players in the country are invited to make their own contribution in whatever form.
YOU ARE ALL WELCOME!
