Kombo South District Sports Committee (KSDSC) has revealed that the proposed December commencement of the 2013-2014 late Kajali Badjie and late Ismaila Nyassi Kombo South District football tournament has been put on hold.

This decision has been necessitated by the recent hooliganism that hit the 2013 Skye Bank-sponsored Super Nawettan zonal football tournament, causing mayhem in the community, which has been suspended until further notice.

According to the KSDSC, they will work with the Inspector General of Police, the Gambia Football Federation (GFF) and all other stakeholders in the promotion of football for properly structured security coverage of all its games before embarking on formal preparations.

The KSDSC has also expressed regret for the inconvenience this situation may have caused football fans and the community, saying it intends to organize a violence-free district football competition that will be enjoyed by all and sundry.

Any new developments as regards the situation and recommencement of the tourney will be duly communicated to all the villages in the zone.
