GFF president Lamin Kaba Bajo is continuing his drive to change the mind set of Gambians to shift from taking sports, especially football, as just play. 

Addressing some Fifty- two participants drawn from women football attending an administration and technical course, Bajo said football should now be seen as a huge business enterprise giving the life changing opportunities it has brought to people around the world including The Gambia. 

Lamin Kaba Bajo also told the course participants that the training is designed to build the capacity of would-be leaders in women football which he said is being given top consideration by both the GFF and Fifa.


“It is also getting huge attention in Fifa  as evidenced in  FIFA president Sepp Blatter’s pronouncements,” Bajo said. 

The course instructor, Abdul Salam Jammeh said the training availed participants the opportunity to know the history of women football, the GFF constitution, barriers, challenges and achievements while admitting that women football has graduated from local to sub regional level. The participants were split into two, with 26 undergoing the technical course while the remaining 26 were tutored in general administration incorporating finance, resource mobilisation and communication. It took place at the National Technical Training Center (NTTC) in Yundum, from Saturday to Sunday.
