The handball federation denounces the lack of support

Handball is one of the fastest growing sports and the fourth in Liberia behind football, basketball and tennis.

But handball is the least popular sport in the country, despite being the fastest growing sport.

The secretary general of the Liberian Handball Federation, Hadji Musa A. Sesay, says that since taking office, the Federation has not received a dime from the government to support football.

However, he says his dream is to decentralize handball into the 2021/2022 league.

Sesay points out that decentralizing the game to at least six counties, including Margibi, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Grand Bassa, Bong County and Nimba, is also his dream.

He laments that handball is being promoted through the personal pockets of individuals just for the sake of the game by playing matches in a few counties in Liberia, including Bomi, Margibi and Montserrado on their own initiative.

It highlights the need for the government to support and promote gambling tournaments in schools across the country and nationally. unity-sports – park / Editing by Jonathan Browne
