Scorpions training camp in Comoros Islands canceled

Aug 31, 2021, 1:27 PM

The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) and Ministry of Youth and Sports have announced the cancellation of the proposed training camp for the Senior National Team slated between 30th August to 8th September 202.

This decision is necessitated by the inability of the Ministry of Youth and Sports to access the required funds to finance the training camp.

When the situation was communicated to the GFF with the options of either the GFF pre-finance the camping or rescheduled it to the next FIFA Window next month, the Federation tried without success to save the situation by way of pre-financing.

Thus, the decision to call it off after due consultations with the Head Coach and other stakeholders.

The football fans and the general public are being reassured of the commitment of both the Ministry and the Federation to ensure better preparations for our giant Scorpions ahead of their maiden appearance in the African Cup of Nations by ensuring there are training camps in both the upcoming FIFA Windows in October and November 2021.
