Sainey Sissoho, coordinator of Women Football, has said they have received five thousand dollars from FIFA in the past two years for the FIFA Live Your Goal Women Festival.

Sissoho was speaking to reporters at a briefing held yesterday at the Gambia Football Federation Secretariat in Kanifing Layout.

Sissoho pointed out that the event is organised to create awareness as well as promote women football in The Gambia as part of the Gambia Football Federation’s four-year strategic plan for women.

She stated that the event is slated for Sunday 5 June 2016 in Farafenni, North Bank Region.

The past two festivals were held in Greater Banjul, she noted, saying that taking the event to Farafenni would enable them to scout raw talents in North Bank Region and its environs.

Sissoho applauded Gambia Football Federation for their tireless contribution towards the development of women football in the country.
