In late February 2012, African Sports Monthly, the only Digital Sports Magazine for Africa, will be offering its first Print Edition for the March 2012 Issue Subtitled ‘Nations Cup Special Edition’.
The Magazine, which was founded two years ago in January of 2010 by Mr. Leslie Koroma based in Texas USA, has been published strictly on the digital platform since its founding. Mr. Leslie Koroma, who is himself a former athlete, is an American Citizen with African Roots from the small West African nation of Sierra Leone.
