Kanifing Municipal Council Mayor Talib Ahmed Bensuda football tournament will commence this Saturday at Serrekunda East Mini Stadium.

The opening match will feature Old Jeshwang and Bakoteh wards and is described by many football admirers as a crunch tie.

Speaking at the draw held at the KMC complex, Mr. Bensouda said the trophy is organised for only teams residing within KMC and is meant to bring them together under one umbrella. “We all came from different tribes, political parties, geographical locations, gender and age but the most important is that we are all Gambians and residence of the municipality,” he stated.

He hailed sponsors of the tournament for bankrolling the competition while urging football fans in Kanifing Municipality to come and support their respective teams.
