Fifa warns Sierra Leone it faces a ban from global football

Football in the West African nation has been beset by conflict in recent years.

A four-man Fifa unit is due to arrive in Sierra Leone shortly to investigate match-fixing claims involving the national team.

Football’s world governing body is also overseeing a roadmap which concerns, in addition to the match-fixing investigation, delays to FA elections and agreeing the conduct of integrity checks on officials wanting to contest executive positions.



On 12 September, the ACC instructed both Johansen and Christopher Kamara to step aside as it investigates both for abuse of office and public funds – charges the pair strenuously deny.
Local rules in Sierra Leone require that an official facing such charges must step aside until the case is closed.Local rules in Sierra Leone require that an official facing such charges must step aside until the case is closed.
