On the weekend, the Saint Lucia Football Association Inc. staged a Finance Workshop with its member leagues as it relates to the SLFA Inc. Assistance Program – SLFAP.
One of the aims of the program is to inject direct revenue to its 19 affiliates. It is intended that the development of football is undertaken and sustained and to ensure the 19 member leagues have a level of support. Hence the program was created to provide direct investment in order to enable that meaningful support.
According to the SLFA, approximately $360,000 worth of FIFA funding is being provided specifically to support member affiliates, necessitating the proper execution of development programs to sustain the game.
Sommers Augustin of the Anse La Raye Football League and Lanfraze Cherubin of the South Castries Football League weighed in on their satisfaction with the conduct of this exercise.
