(elbcradio.com/Feb. 19, 2016) - The Liberia Football Association has reinstated with immediate effect five clubs to participate in the ongoing 2015/2016 National League.

The reinstated clubs are the Country’s Oldest Football Club, Invincible Eleven (IE), NPA Anchors, Monrovia Club Breweries, Mighty Blue Angels and Small Town FC.

They were barred by the Liberia Football Association for reportedly failing to meet the requirements set by the LFA First Instant Board in obtaining club’s license.

This followed the LFA First Instant Board’s inspection of all clubs failing to meet the minimum requirements of obtaining their licenses in line with standard International Policy of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and World Football Governing Body FIFA to all member federations/associations

A statement from FA authorities says the decision to reinstate the clubs was reached at an Emergency Executive Committee’s Meeting held recently and chaired by LFA President, Musa Bility.

According to the statement, the reinstated clubs will begin the season on three points’ deduction.

A report released by  the First Instant Board, is quoted as saying the affected clubs did not have headquarters , business registries, articles of incorporation, bank statements or bank accounts, practice grounds,  among others.

According to the report, Liberian Darling Club, Invincible Eleven, will not compete in this season’s competition.

The report was confirmed Tuesday by IE Secretary General, Vincent Yelegar.

Mr. Yelegar said: “The Invincible Eleven will not participate in the 2015/2016 National League because the club has loaned out all of its players to various clubs.”

“The club is unable to recruit new team of players for the season,” he noted.

The Invincible Eleven, according to the report, took the decision to loan out all of its players after the LFA barred the club from participating in the National League.

Mr. Yelegar, however, said, the IE will get fully prepared for the 2016/2017 Season.

Mr. Yelegar disclosed that a formal communication has been sent to the Liberia Football Association Competition Committee on the exclusion of the IE from the Competition.

The LFA Competition Committee Chairman has announced that a new fixture is been sent to all participating clubs on the latest chances.
