By Sulayman Bah The Gambia Football Federation has spoken tough of what it calls clubs’Gambia Football Federation habit of organising international test matches without approval, Foroyaa Sport can report. In a communiqué issued to media outlets the federation though failedto cite a particular example of such an occurrence but urged clubs and individuals to desist from the act. Below read the full text of the communique, The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) hereby informs the general public that entities and individuals who are in the habit of organizing either international or exhibition matches must seek formal approval from the Gambia Football Federation before such events would take place. This is necessitated by the GFF’s observation that individuals and Clubs are in the habit of inviting foreign clubs or their associates to the country for international or exhibition matches without the authority and approval of the GFF. Note that only the Gambia Football Federation (GFF) reserves the right as the body responsible for all Football matters in the country to approve or otherwise the friendly international matches of foreign teams or exhibition events in the country. The National or Regional Football Referees are also strictly advised not to take part in such matches or events unless sanctioned by the GFF. While anticipating that such acts would cease with immediate effect, the GFF takes this opportunity to thank all stakeholders for the collaboration and further solicits their support in the drive for Football development.’]]>
