The Super Nawettan Zonal football championship is slated for 2 November 2014, according to the new football calendar released Monday by the newly-elected Gambia Football Federation (GFF) executive committee.

The annual championship brings together 12 zones and attracts more spectators and more funds than the national domestic leagues – the first and second division respectively.

The annual championship also produces stunning ambiance and very good football more than the national domestic leagues.

The national domestic league club coaches and national team coaches use the Super Nawettan to scout good players for their clubs and for the national teams.

Many football admirers in the country are advocating the transformation of the Super Nawettan into the national domestic league in order to improve the league.

It would be recalled it that Serrekunda West zone won the 2013 championship after beating the 2012 champions Brikama 1-0 in a tightly contested final game played at the Independence Stadium.

Musa Bangura notched in the winner for Serrekunda West in the second half to grab their first-ever Super Nawettan title, since the inception of the championship in the 90s.
