Football in Sierra Leone was on the cusp of a very promising future when political turmoil and the outbreak of civil war put paid to any bright prospects in 1992. For ten years, the unrest presented a severe obstacle for domestic and international football activities. Now that peace has returned, despite a few difficulties, competitions (two divisions, a women's league and a U-15 championship) have successfully resumed thanks to support from FIFA. Stadiums that have been almost empty for years are now filling up again, and standards of play are constantly improving, primarily due to the return of players who left the nation when the troubles first erupted. The Sierra Leone Football Association's greatest achievement was its U-17 team's qualification for the World Championship 2003 in Finland (based on its performance at the African U-17 Championship in Swaziland). The nation's two best-known active players are Mohamed Kallon (Inter Milan) and Mamdu Bah (currently playing in Belgium).
