According to KM President Bakary Paco Dampha, six other teams have been added to the ten that competed the league last year.

“We have agreed to  give each of the five zones in the region a slot to register a team but Bakau was given two, to allow Sait Matty FC a chance to rise again,” he said.

Dampha further revealed that there will be only a single round of matches totalling 125 matches. “We cannot play a round robin league because that will take ages to complete,” he said, adding that the league will be played in the local grounds in the region.


The grand opening is slated for Sunday at the Father Gough Sports Complex at Manjai Kunda between champions Marimoo and vice champions London Boys. 

The match will be preceded by a demonstration match between Father Gough Academy and Tallingding United Academy.

 Under the new GFF structures, regional leagues shall be staged in all regions, organised by the regional football associations who are subvented by the Federation to run football in their respective regions. So far, only West Coast and KM have managed to organise competitions while the rest of the regions continue to battle with organisational bottlenecks.
