The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) is in full preparations for the forthcoming FIFA Live Your Goals (LYG) girls’ festival slated to take place in October.
The 4th edition of the LYG will be staged in Jarra Soma, in LRR.
The GFF Women’s Football Coordinator, Sainey Sissohore, and her colleague Youth and Grassroots Manager Alhagie Ebrima Nyassi have recently visited the event ground in Soma to discuss with the relevant stakeholders the logistics and other important plans for the successful hosting of the event.
The Live Your Goals Girls festival will be staged in provincial Gambia for the second time in the year.
The first two editions of the girls’ festival were staged in Kombo at the now refurbished National Technical Training Centre in Yundum (FIFA Goal project ) while the North Bank Region hosted the 3rd edition in May at the Farafenni mini stadium.
The objective of the LYG is to increase the awareness of women’s football and to encourage the participation of girls to play football amongst others.
The forthcoming event is expected to attract more than five hundred girls who will also receive technical training from the Live Your Goals Ambassadors and take part in different games during the event. The occasion would be graced by GFF Executive Committee members, football stakeholders and a cross-section of the community in LRR.
