The Chairman of the GFF Events Management Committee William Abraham has called on fans to maintain order and abide by the standard practices of football. Willy said the recent fine CH 10, 000 meted out to the Gambia for the misconduct of its fans at last World Cup preliminary Qualifier at home to Angola “should be a wake up call for all of us”. He appealed to fans and all other stakeholders to desist from hooliganism which is grave infringement on FIFA match orders and security.
Commenting on the sale of match tickets for the return leg of the Gambia vs Djibouti Afcon Preliminary Qualifiers, the Real De Banjul FC President said the Events Management Committee will now sell tickets at the Stadium gates on the match day. “We have realized that when tickets are sold in advance, some unscrupulous people will buy them to recycle in bulk and that has been a lost for us”.
He nonetheless, urged people to turn out in numbers to cheer up the Scorpions after they picked up a point away in Djibouti City. “Djibouti is a very good side, fast and good on the ball and we should not underrate them. So we should all come out and support the team because we have a chance to qualify from the return leg”, he sounded.
Willy said there will be tight security and more men from the Security Forces are been requested to be added to the existing number. “We will beef up more security because it is very important so that we are all secured and safe and to avoid people descending onto the pitch”.
The Match is scheduled for Sunday 13th October, 2019 at the Independence Stadium in Bakau at 4pm. The EMC has earlier announced that entry tickets into the Stadium on the match day are as follows:
VIP at D1000:00, Covered Pavilions at D200:00 and Uncovered Pavilions at only D100:00
