Be a Leader

The WAFA stages the Sierra Leone Division One League, Division Two League, Grassroot league and, women’s competitions like the Women’s League.


Founded in 1957, the WAFA is the game's governing body in Sierra Leone. 

It is a representative democracy, and is the umbrella organisation for all football clubs and other interest groups in the country.

The WAFA is responsible for overseeing, promoting and developing Sierra Leone football at all levels, from grassroots through to the professional game.

Our main objectives, enshrined in our statutes, are to develop football around the country, to organize domestic competitions and to protect the integrity of football (against match manipulation, doping etc.).


Our other aims are to deal with all questions relating to Sierra Leone football, to promote football in a spirit of unity, solidarity, peace, understanding and fair play, without any discrimination on the part of politics, race, religion, gender, or any other reason, to safeguard the values of the game, maintain relations with all stakeholders involved in Sierra Leone football, and support and safeguard our members for the overall well-being of the game in the country.

By far Sierra Leone’s biggest and most important sporting discipline, our passion for the game in Sierra Leone is driven by our desire for success on the pitch.

With this also comes with our focus on developing youth talent while using the game to contribute to society.
