The final of the Comium smile coast beach football tourney is scheduled for Sunday 16th August 2009, at Palma Rima Beach.

The final game will feature Nema College FC of Brikama in the Western Region and AYK of Banjul.

32 teams take part in the championship which is geared towards developing and promoting beach football, and to also support young talented players in the country, who were unable to be featured in the GFA first division league.

Speaking to Pointsport, Alieu Gassama, a member of the organising committee of the tourney, said the winner of the tourney will go home with D100,000.00, while the runners-up will receive D50,000.00 as the consolation prize and third and forth place holders will each receive D25,000.00.

According to him, Comium is willing to promote sports in the country, particularly football. He seized the opportunity to call on the general pubic to come to Palm Rima Beach and witness the most-awaited final.

He assured the finalists of free and fair game and urged them to exercise discipline during the game.
