Deliberating on this at a packed media conference at the Oasis Building GFF president Lamin Bajo said: ”Recognising their immense contribution to the development of football in the country over the years, and considering the fact that most of them often face medical and financial

difficulties, we intend to create a Football Veterans Welfare Fund”.

National Football Veterans Association and the active players.
