Gambia: Four Million Deal for GFA League Sponsorship

A deal worth 4 million for the sponsorship of Gambia Football Association domestic league had been reached.

Gamtel/Gamcel are said to have brokered a deal worth the aforementioned amount with the country's football governing body some weeks ago before the commencement of the league championship.

However official modalities and conditions of the contract remain undisclosed and paper deal is unsigned as at now, but a meeting is set to be convened this week albeit a date is not identified yet.

Earlier attempts for the two parties to sign deal over a press conference had a hitch after Gamtel officials failed to turn up, prompting the session to be put off.

With a signing mulled this week, the procedure may well be put on hold again with Gambia Football Association Normalisation Committee's Vice Chairman Omar Sey out of the country to attend the on-going African Cup of Nations.

12 of the local teams in the national league will reap the joy of the 4 million deal sponsorship and the nitty-gritty of the procedure is expected to be communicated to them, according to the GFA.

The league has however started in earnest with ten goals registered over last weekend, four of which were scored by Gambia Ports Authority in the Ferry Boy's savaging of Interior.

Real De Banjul are title holders and got off to a blistering start in their trophy defense crusade brushing off Banjul Hawks in a capital derby held at the rejuvenated KG5 mini-stadium on Saturday.
