The Gambia Football Federation, GFF, has begun the disbursement of preparation money to all League clubs, for the 2016-2017 domestic league Season.

All club managers or their representative are, in fact, being duly informed of this development, and all are urged to walk to the Football House in Kanifing to collect their monies.

The GFF President Lamin Kabba Bajo last month announced that the GFF executive has unanimously agreed to support all league clubs and waive registration fees, among others, for the new League season ahead.

The GFF will furthermore give financial support to all the local playing grounds to uplift the standard of their grounds.

 According to the head of the GFF, the federation would also support league and super cup champions Gambia Ports Authority, and FF champions Brikama United, for their participations in the 2017 CAF club competitions.

Gambia Ports Authority is expected to participate in the CAF Champions League after clinching the 2015-2016 domestic division one league title.

Brikama United are also set to participate in the CAF Confederations Cup after claiming the 2015-2016 FF cup title, following their 1-0 win over rivals Bombada in the final game played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on 5 June 2016, courtesy of striker Sainey Bojang’s second-half strike.
