Major nawettan zones in The Gambia have cancelled their 2020 nawettan football competitions following the extension of state of public emergency and curfew by President Adama Barrow in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

The wet season’s biggest football festivity commences in the country in July every year but covid-19 halted the start of the annual football jamboree.

Nawettan football attracts more spectators, ambiance and revenue than the country’s divisional league matches.

Meanwhile, division league clubs coaches use nawettan to scout good players for their teams.
