A leading estate firm in The Gambia, Green Vision International Estate Company, is set to sponsor the 2016 Gunjur Nawettan league trophy following a successful negotiation between the company and Gunjur Sports Committee.

Reacting to Green Vision International Real Estate Company’s decision to sponsor the Gunjur Wet season biggest football fray, Lamin Darboe, alias Darboe C, who is president of Gunjur Sports Committee, hailed Green Vision International Real Estate Company for sponsoring the league trophy.

The committee, he said, has been soliciting sponsorship for their nawettan in the previous years but to no avail.

Darboe added that Green Vision International Real Estate Company’s taking the mantle to sponsor the league would aid the committee in their strive to develop football in Gunjur.

Nuha Barrow and Assan Jassey, treasurer and assistant treasurer of Gunjur Sports Committee, both applauded Green Vision International Real Estate Company for bankrolling their nawettan after struggling to snatch sponsorship for it in previous years.

Vice president Momodou Charreh Gibba and secretary general Ebrima Jammeh (alias Fabou) of Gunjur Sports Committee expressed similar sentiments.

For their part, Green Vision International Real Estate Company said they are pleased to sponsor Gunjur Nawettan league this year, after series of letters they received from Gunjur Sports Committee for support in the previous years.

The company added that they are not really sponsoring the nawettan for advertisement purpose but to promote sport.

They said they would provide the finalists with jerseys, cash prizes and other logistics, adding that every year they receive letters from the committee for donation.

“We feel it is necessary to sponsor the committee this year rather than give them small amount of funds every year,” the company said.
