BALDWIN HILLS – In an effort to put a Black face on the game of soccer in Los Angeles, Sierra Leone’s ‘Leone All Stars’ will face Cameroon’s CAMSOLA/L.A. Lions team in an exhibition game on Sat., Dec. 3, at 2 p.m. at the Rancho Cienega Recreational Center. 

Arguably one the most highly anticipated soccer games, Saturday’s match will be the first time the two teams have played against each other since Sierra Leone defeated Cameroon to take the title and cup in the 2011 Los Angeles African Soccer Tournament.


The action kicks off Sat., Dec. 3, 2011 at 2 p.m. at Rancho Cienega Recreational Center, adjacent to Dorsey High School, at 5001 South Rodeo Road in Los Angeles.  Newly elected Council President-Elect Herb Wesson is expected to be in attendance.  More info at
