The betting company Doxxbet-Liberia and the Liberia Football Association have signed a partnership agreement to support the local league.
The partnership agreement signed Monday at the ATS will see Doxxbet-Liberia provide twenty-four thousand United States dollars to the LFA in a twelve month period.
According to the agreement, the money will be used to cover expenses for all of the individual awards in the LFA National League.
The agreement signed with Doxxbet-Liberia Monday, April 29, 2019, will provide sponsorship for the individual awards such as the highest goal scorers, most valuable players, best defenders, best goalkeepers, best coaches in the first, second and women’s divisions as well as the best referee and best sports reporter.
Doxxbet-Liberia managing Director Brawislau Lysonel speaking at the signing ceremony said the initiative is the Gambling Company’s way of identifying and supporting Liberian football.
He said “I will like to thank Liberia Football Association and our management team to have an opportunity to establish this partnership which we were trying to establish for longer period of time. We hope this partnership between us and the LFA can only get better”.
Responding, LFA President Mustaphai Raji described the partnership agreement as a huge support to Liberian football.
He said it’s a sign that Liberian football is on the verge of recovery.
“We believe that this is going to be a mutual benefit to both entities. We hope that our performance as we move forward with the partnership will extend the contract to a longer term to the benefit of Liberia, the players and Doxxbet-Liberia” LFA President noted at the signing.
Doxxbet-Liberia which launched its sports betting platform in Liberia in 2013 has not been involved with local sporting activities, but it seems, the company wants to end that with this partnership entered into with the LFA.
The company landed support to the Youth and Sports Ministry when it organized the 2017/18 National County Sports Meet.
The partnership signing ceremony was graced by several LFA Executive Committee members and Deputy Youth and Sports Ministry Andy Quamie.
Deputy Minister Quamie praised the partnership and urged Doxxbet to consider “Grassroot Football”.
He described as welcoming the initiative and called for more efforts in developing sports in Liberia.
The Company, however, is yet to place the Liberian League on its betting platform despite it’s the growth of its business in Liberia.
The Monrovia Time has learned that fear of “match manipulation” in the Liberian league has created a bottleneck for the Liberian League getting on the Doxxbet-Liberia gambling platform.
