Liberia’s premier GSM Company, Orange Liberia has renewed its long standing support to the Liberia Football Association (LFA) with the purpose of supporting the national team, the national league, and the county meet.

Speaking on behalf of the Ministry of Youth & Sports honorable G..Andy Quamie thanked Orange Liberia for its continued support to the development of football in Liberia and referred to the sponsorship as the single largest support for the development of football in Liberia. He noted: “we are happy to be here to witness this signing ceremony. We are grateful but not surprised because across Africa, Orange is the biggest sponsor of sports. Even at the African cup of nations and CAF, Orange is the biggest sponsor, so we are not surprised that Orange is the biggest sponsor for football in Liberia.”
His words of gratitude were echoed by Mr. Sekou Konneh – VP for Administration at the Liberia Football Authority who called on other businesses to emulate the efforts of Orange Liberia. The President of the Liberia Football Authority Mr. Mustapha Raji buttressed his statement and went on to congratulate Orange Liberia for the role it has historically played as a supporter of football in Liberia.

He says, Orange Liberia has always gone above and beyond expectation. He described it as an exemplary company that cared not only for its business but for its customers and the nation as a whole.
