The Sierra Leone Football Association has today Tuesday 15th, August 2023 successfully conducted a one day seminar on the FIFA Connect Program for club administrators and Regional FA Competitions Officers at the SLFA Secretariat in Freetown.
Facilitated by SLFA’s Director of Competitions Sorie Ibrahim Sesay and Premier League Board Secretary Sampha Hassan Kamara, the seminar was aimed at training the football administrators on the professional registration and transfer of players and officials using the FIFA Connect system, ahead of the new league season.
The FIFA Connect Programme helps member associations (MAs) register all their stakeholders in a systematic way and keep track of players, coaches and referees – wherever they are in the world. The Connect Programme provides a unique FIFA ID code- a digital football passport- for every individual (player and official) who has a role in the football organization.
At the end of the training, all the participants were registered into the system and granted full access to carry out the registration of players and officials at their respective clubs and regional football associations.
