The Super Nawettan Organising Committee has released the fixtures for the 2016 FiBank-sponsored Super Nawettan.

The 2015 Super Nawettan champions Serrekunda West will clash with Brikama in the opening game set for Saturday 8 October 20126, at the Independence Stadium in Bakau at 4.30pm.

Serrekunda West snatched the 2015 Super Nawettan title following their penalty shootout win over Sukuta, after their goalless draw in the final game played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium.

The Westside boys beat Brikama 1-0 in the final game played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau to grab their first-ever Super Nawettan title in 2013. They will also be fighting to beat Brikama for the second time to fancy their chances of reaching the quarterfinal as well as keeping their hopes of retaining their 2015 Super Nawettan crown.

Brikama will be coming all out for revenge after losing to Serrekunda West 1-0 in the 2013 Super Nawettan final game played at the Independence Stadium, to clinch the vital three points.

Elsewhere, on Monday 10 October 2016, Gunjur will play against Brufut in the all-West Coast Region derby clash at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

The South boys Gunjur defeated Brufut 3-2 in the 2015 Super Nawettan group staged before losing to eventual champions Serrekunda West on penalties, after their 1-1 draw in the regulation time in the quarterfinal.

The South boys are bent on beating Brufut for the second time to increase their chances of qualifying for the quarterfinal as well as to boost their chances of lifting their first-ever Super Nawettan title.

Brufut will be striving for revenge against Gunjur after losing to the South boys 3-2 in their final group match in the 2016 Super Nawettan.
