Gambia Football Federation said in a statement on Friday: “The Gambia Football Federation regrets to inform the general public that the domestic first division match between Marimoo and Gamtel will be rescheduled to a later date.

“This is due to the fact that following constant power outage, in the Greater Banjul Area, only five minutes was played between the two sides under the floodlights at the Independence Stadium and upon restart, it didn’t take long for NAWEC to take off the lights again.

“This is after Elite United’s 2-1 defeat of Brikama United in the first match was delayed for 35 minutes due to the same issue. After frentic efforts to ensure NAWEC give us an exception, it proved futile and the decision was taken to call off the match by the Organising Committee. We will give you more information about the date and time of the rescheduled match when available. We apologise for any inconvenience.”
