GPA return today after CAF Champions league triumph over Sewe Sport

Feb 21, 2017, 11:50 AM

The 2015-2016 Gambia Football Federation domestic division one league champions Gambia Ports Authority are set to return home today, 21 February 2017, from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, following their 2017 CAF Champions league success over Sewe Sport.

The Gambia champions held the Ivorian vice-champions to a goalless draw in the second leg clash on Sunday to sail to the second round of the continent’s top tier football club competition following their 1-0 home win over the Ivorian side in the first leg in Banjul last week.

The Gambian champions will now face As Vita Club of Democratic Republic of Congo in the first leg in March 2017, in Banjul before the return leg a week later in Kinshasa.

The Ivorian side will now hang their boots in the continent’s top-tier football club competition after losing to The Gambia champions 1-0 on aggregate and will therefore switch their attention to the domestic league.
