The draw for the 2016 Super Nawettan was held yesterday at the Gambia Football Federation Secretariat in Kanifing Layout.

Twelve major nawettan teams are divided into two groups of six zones each for the country’s community biggest football fray.

The groupings for the 2016 Super Nawettan are as follows.

Group A comprises the 2015 Super Nawettan champions Serrekunda West, whipping boys Serrekunda Central, Lamin, BEM, Brikama and Manjai.

Group B consists of 2015 runners up Sukuta, Serrekunda East, Brufut, Bakau, Gunjur and Banjul.

Speaking at the draw, Ba S. Jabbi, the chairman of the Super Nawettan Organising Committee, said Super Nawettan is set to kick off on 8 October and finish on 30 October 2016, adding that matches will be played in Serrekunda East, West, Manjai and Brikama.

Jabbi pointed out Brikama will not play in their home at the Box Mini Stadium due to crowd incident that occurred against Banjul last year, noting that semifinal and final will be played at the Independence Stadium.

For his part, Bakary B. Baldeh, GFF media officer, said FiBank will sponsor the super nawettan in next three years.
