The final of the most awaited Gambia Football Association FA Cup is billed for Sunday 22 July 2012, at the Independence Stadium in Bakau at 4.30pm.

The final, which will feature reigning FA Cup champions Gamtel and GFA second-tier side Interior, is described by many football fans in the country as crunch battle.

Sunday’s meeting will be the first meeting of both sides in a GFA FA Cup final.

Gamtel won the GFA FA Cup title back to back in 2010 and 2011 respectively, but lost to Young Africans in the 2009 FA Cup final on post-match penalty shootout, after goalless draw in regulation time.

They will be hoping for a victory to retain the FA Cup title for the third consecutive time.

Sunday’s final game will be the first appearance of Interior in the GFA FA Cup final and will be expecting a win in order to secure their first GFA FA Cup title.
