Independence Stadium pitch needs urgent improvement

Tuesday, February 27, 2018

The Gambia’s Independence Stadium pitch needs urgent improvement as the country’s only main football pitch continues to be in a terrible condition. Aside from hosting football games, the national stadium also hosts different other sporting disciplines.

To host international football matches among other sporting events, the stadium pitch would need more improvement. In fact, it was the condition of the pitch that disturbed Gambia Armed Forces and Zanaco FC 2018 CAF champions league preliminary second leg clash on Saturday.

Authorities need to make all efforts to improve the condition of stadium pitch before Gambia’s international friendly match against Central African Republic next month in Banjul as well as the 2019 Africa cup of Nations qualifiers in September.
