Momodou Gaye, the GFA and FIFA Security Officer and Deputy Inspector General of Police, disclosed on West Coast Radio that some people who forged tickets during the Gambia and Senegal match last Sunday have been arrested and detained, awaiting appearance before justice.

Deputy IGP Gaye urged people to desist from forging GFA tickets, warning that anyone caught in the act would face the full force of the law.

He further revealed that for The Gambia-Algeria match scheduled to be played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on Saturday, ticket prizes would be reduced as follow: D500.00 for VIP, D100.00 for Covered Pavilion and D50.00 for Uncovered Pavilion.

He added that tickets would be sold at Yiriwa FM in Brikama and at the Independence Stadium at 9am on Saturday. 

Gaye used the occasion to call on Gambians to come out in their thousands to cheer on the Scorpions. He expressed gratitude for the level of discipline shown during the Gambia-Senegal match and expressed the hope that the attitude would continue during forthcoming matches to be played in Banjul.
