The 2019 Africell-sponsored Super nawetan competition will begin on 1 November, according to organisers of the country’s annual eminent community biggest football fiesta.

This year’s championship will bring together twenty major nawetan zones following the inclusion of Kombo Central two, Farafenni and Kombo Coastal Road.

Bakau will return to the super nawetan this year after serving their one year suspension for vandalizing properties at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda following their 1-0 defeat to Serrekunda East in the 2017 super nawetan quarterfinal.

The tournament attracts more spectators, ambiance and revenue than the country’s first and second division league matches.

Serrekunda East clinched last year’s super nawetan title after beating Brikama on penalties following their 1-1 draw in regulation time of the final played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
