Gambia: 25 Sports Associations Cleared

Twenty-five national sports Associations have been cleared to operate following a mass de-registration by the National Sports Council.

Twenty-one associations were dissolved by the Sports Council for not meeting local and international standard regulations in June last year.

Out of an initial number of thirty-one associations,

only ten survived the NSC's trimming in June last year. The Council's swift decision was backed by the National sports Council's Act of 2000.

A statement from the body urged eligible associations to submit their activity plan for 2013 before a dateline of March 30th.

"The Financial and Activity Reports for the year end 2012 should be submitted to the Sports Council Secretariat on or before March 2013", states the release issued yesterday and signed by Executive Secretary, Max Jallow.

While pledging support for all registered bodies in achieving their outlined aims, the dispatch reminded its affiliates to address concerns/letters directly to the Council not the Sports Ministry.
