Both Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) and Football Club Fassell will have to search for new venues for their home matches after CAF maintained its ban on football activities in Liberia and the same action was levied against Guinea and Sierra Leone.
The three countries have been badly hit by the Ebola virus which has taken thousands of lives in the Mano River Union region despite reported decline cases now in the three countries.
BYC on the other hand will have to secure a neutral venue for their return leg clash as they will travel to The Gambia to face Club Real de Banjul in Banjul on the weekend of February 13-15 for the first leg.
According to reports from Liberia, the Liberia Football Association (LFA) Secretary General Alphonso Armah have confirmed the CAF mandate and they were disturbed by the news.
“It is sad news for Football in Liberia. BYC and Fassell qualified so that they can play in front of their supporters back home, but the matches have been referred to a foreign land by CAF, this is the decision that has been taken, and we have nothing to do but to support our clubs. We didn't go looking for Ebola, but it is a sickness that has affected us ”, Armah was quoted by Insight Sports.
He also revealed that CAF has warned both BYC and FC Fassell that their delegations traveling to the selected country must be examined before departure in order to allay fears centered on the EBOLA virus.
