international Ebrima Sohna will give out his match allowances to fans during
the country’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers return leg at home to Togo
on Tuesday at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
Sohna, who is currently with the Scorpions in Lome for the continent’s bi-annual biggest football fiesta qualifiers first leg tie with the Hawks, disclosed the package to GFF Communication Department when he called Bakary B. Baldeh on telephone on Wednesday afternoon shortly before the team went on day two of their training session in Lome.
“Henceforth, I will dedicate my match allowances to the fans whenever the team plays home where I might be part of,” Sohna said.
He said the package would be used to purchase tickets for the fans as part of complementing the Federation’s efforts to popularize and bring people to the games. “The tickets could be used to encourage the fans in the form of competition on questions relating to the Scorpions so that fans would know their players well.”
Sohna plays for Kesla in the Azerbaijan premier league and was a key member of the Scorpions in their home game against Algeria last month in Banjul that earned the Gambia its first vital point in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
GFF first-vice president and head of delegation to Lome Bakary K. Jammeh said tickets and T-Shirts are available in anticipation of receiving Gambian fans in Togo, Ghana and Benin that have made plans to travel and cheer up the Scorpions due to the proximity of the countries to Lome, Togo.
