Five of the Nawettan teams in the Greater Banjul Area received sets of football jerseys, including footballs and other materials from Premier Games company one of the leading companies that support sports in the country last week Wednesday..
The benefiting teams are as follows: Makann FC of Banjul, Unicons FC of Serekunda West, Falcans FC of Serekunda East, Ballacks FC of Manjai Kunda,and New town FC of Brikama.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony at the company’s head office along Kombo Sillah Drive Serekunda, Mr John Mcnally told the audience that they are operating in 21 other countries all over the world. This included Gambia where they have staff strength of 142 most of who are all Gambians.
Jon said it is important that companies plough back some of the profits to the community they operate. And that is one of the reasons why we are today presenting these jerseys to our local teams.
“We do not only stop at supporting football teams but we are also supporting the Gambia Disable organization. We are also into education as we are supporting some people up to university level studying different fields and some at the Gambia Technical Training Institute for other technical subjects.” John said
The Premier Games boss said this is just the beginning; we intend to do more than this. We have plans to invest in the industry; in the areas of training of coaches. My company will play an active role in the development of sports in the Gambia, John stressed
Alhagie Njie the Sales and Marketing manager told the gathering that his company just came into existence in the Gambia February of 2014; but they are spreading all over the country’s main towns.
