AshantiGold to play Sierra Leone in Kick Ebola Away friendly

Ghanaian champions AshantiGold SC will fly on Friday to play Sierra Leone national team in a friendly match.

The exhibition encounter has been arranged after Sierra Leone was cleared to host international football after the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the country free from Ebola.

The West African country last hosted an international fixture on home soil on 19 July 2014 when the Leone Stars defeated Seychelles in a 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Freetown.

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) imposed the ban 15 months ago to stop the spread of the virus which affected 8,704 people in Sierra Leone, claiming 3,589 lives.
