Real De Banjul Football Club has supported Banjul City Council BBC in fight against the spread of the Coronavirus with a donation of fifty thousand dalasis. The club’s second vice-president Alhagie Bakary K. Jammeh said the support to BCC is to create awareness campaign to stop the spread of the virus in the country.

“We are here to support the Mayor and her council to tackle this pandemic,” said Bakary Jammeh. Real De Banjul is the oldest club in the country and we deemed it necessary to come and show solidarity with the council in these difficult times.”

The twelve-times Gambian champions lead the way in the current GFF division one league with a six points margin after fourteen matches.

The Mayor of Banjul Rohey Malick Lowe lauded Real De Banjul’s donation describing it as historic. She called on the citizenry to follow the guidelines of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the ministry of Health against Covid19.

The coronavirus has halted Real De Banjul’s season after the GFF postponed the 2019-2020 season; the city boys are bidding to win their first league title in six seasons.
