CEO Premier Games delineate plans for Gambia

Speaking in an interview with The Standard newspaper, John McNally, operations manager and CEO, said Premier Games was established in The Gambia on 17 February 2014 with six branches.

Premier Games, he said, aims to help the youths by creating employment and promoting interest in sports.

According to the CEO, Premier Games operates at the Serekunda Market, Yundum, Bakau, Old Jeshwang, Brikama, Sukuta and Barra with plans to expand to remote areas very soon.

He outlined that his company is investing on wrestling because it is the second most popular sports in the country and appreciated by a lot of people. 

”We are not only investing just purely on employment here, we have about 120 staffs in the operations department and we also have our external retailers sitting in the streets at various locations and within the last four months we have employed 50 Gambians,” Mr McNally revealed.

“We don’t employ anyone who is not Gambian. A 100 percent of our workforce are Gambian with the exception of myself and a couple of senior management team members.” 

He disclosed that they are also investing in renovating football pitches, giving out equipment to promote the development of sports by donating football facilities and working with some local teams.

McNally revealed that they work closely with the Gambia Federation for the Disabled and recently donated them D100,000 as well as partnering with the GTTI for the training and the development of  disabled Gambian youths.

He asserted that his company paid for live commentary of the current World Cup at Star FM and installed facilities for public viewing of the matches at some locations as well as providing live streaming of the matches at the Premier Games centers free of charge.
