Gambia stadium to be inspected today
Tuesday, May 06, 2008
The inspection team of world football's governing body, FIFA, has arrived in the country to inspect The Gambia Independence Stadium - the main ground that will host Gambia's 2010 World Cup qualifier matches.
The inspection exercise, which will be conducted today, will confirm whether the ground is legible to host Scorpions' international matches in the South Africa 2010 World Cup qualifier, which doubles as qualifier for Angola 2010 Nations Cup finals.
The FIFA inspector, in his last Banjul trip, expressed the need for the authorities to improve facilities at the country's main stadium. The official singled out the need for improved dressing room and toilets facilities, as well as a standardized pitch.
