What is next for Gambian football after the last twenty-one days of state of public emergency ended yesterday?

Gambia Football Federation (GFF) declared its 2019-2020 league campaign null and void in May 2020 following the extension of state of public emergency by President Adama Barrow in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

The wet season biggest football jamboree (Nawettan) normally begins in July every year but Covid-19 spate delay the annual football championship. Nawettan football attracts more spectators, ambiance and revenue than the country's Division One and Two competitions.
