National FA Cup For the first time, a national FA Cup competition was held in 1962. The trophy was donated by the Governor-General, Sir Henry Lightfoot Boston. The format was that one team from each of the four regions of Sierra Leone would qualify for national semi-finals; the three Provinces each held inter-district knockout matches, while in the Western Area the top eight clubs from Division 1 played knockout matches. In this sense the competition was a hybrid comprised of clubs (Western Area) and district representative teams (Provinces).
