As part of their preparations for the 2012 CAF African champions league for the 2010-2011, Gambia Football Association (GFA) division one league champions Brikama United will clash with Brikama Zonal team in a test game slated for Sunday 13 November 2011 at the Box Mini-stadium in Brikama.

Brikama United, who lost to Senegal’s FA Cup champions Cassa Sport 2-1 in an international friendly game a fortnight ago,  will use Sunday’s test game to select a formidable team that will participate in the continent’s biggest top football club competition.

The team will also play series of test games both home and away to prepare the team very well for the championship that will commence in early 2012.

It would be recalled that Brikama United clinched the GFA division one league championship after bagging 43 points in twenty-two games.

Brikama Zonal team will use the test game to prepare well for the GFA Super Nawetan zonal football tournament.
