Montserrado County: The Liberia Football Association (LFA) Upper Women's Division League has fined relegation-threatened side Blanco FC LD$ 175,000 for registering for a game on the match day in its encounter that was forfeited to League Leaders, Determine Girls.

The relegation-threatened side, Blanco FC, was due to face current Leaders Determine Girls on Sunday at the Tusa Field in Gardnersville but out of a sudden came to the game to register on the match day which was equivalent to a violation with the LFA Upper Women's Division League match rules.

In the anticipated match at the Tusa Field, Blanco FC fell to forfeiture after designating four players for the match and failing to reach the required number of players for the game against reigning champions, Determine Girls.

With the latest forfeiture, Blanco FC has recorded three fortified matches in the current 2023-2024 LFA Upper Women's Division League season sitting at the bottom of the table with 6 points from 18 matches.

The girls of Blanco have been seated far away from contending for the league championship because their poor performance is threatening the club with relegation: winning one, drawing three, and losing 14 games so far this season.

Besides the fine, Blanco FC has been relegated to the Women's lower league. 

In some most recent matches, Blanco was defeated 5-0 by Ambassador FC, 2-0 by Just FC, and 8-2 by Stages Queen, leaving many fans of the club dispired in their current form.

The LFA Upper Women's League to the effect of Blanco FC match three forfeitures in a statement on Monday, March 25, 2024, has however announced that the club will be subjected to relegation to the women's lower league games at the end of the League season.
