Gambia facing Bissau in prep for Women’s World Cup Qualifiers

GFF News-The Gambia Football Federation wishes to announce that the Gambia Female Scorpions will feature in a friendly international match with their counterparts from Guinea Bissau slated for Saturday 16th September, 2017 at the Independence Stadium in Bakau at 16:30pm.

The warm up match for the Female national team is in preparation for the Gambia’s competitive match in the U-17 Women’s World Cup qualifier away to Sierra Leone in October.

Furthermore the friendly match will mark a much-anticipated return to international football for the Gambia national female players who are hungry to impress. The team will look to build on the 5-1 hammering they gave to the Casa Sports Women’s team at the Soma mini-stadium with the peerless Adama Tamba grabbing a hat-trick with Mbassey Darboe and Penda Bah adding to the emphatic score-line. The friendly international will be the perfect opportunity for all our Female Scorpions to showcase their talents.

As part of logistical arrangements for the weekend game, the GFF wishes to announce that entry into the Independence Stadium would be free and thus there will be no purchase of tickets as far as the game is concerned. All fans, football lovers and the general public are informed that entry is absolutely free.

There will be a Media Conference schedule for Thursday 14th September, 2017 at the Team hotel ( Sea View Gardens ) at 12:00 mid-day. The presser would be attended by Team Head Coach Mariama Bom Sowe and her captain and will also include Vice Chairman of the GFF Events Management Committee to brief the press on the arrangements put in place so far for the weekend game.

The Gambia Football Federation urges the general public to come out in numbers to support the Female national team and further solicits the usual cooperation of all stakeholders in this drive.
