The Gambia Football Federation has punished a newly promoted second division club, TMT Academy, with 10 points deduction and D20,000 fine for inappropriate comments about the federation officials. 

According to GFF, the academy called its officials “hustlers masquerading as football authorities in The Gambia who are making it hard for individuals to invest money into the beautiful sport that we all love”.

The GFF disciplinary committee launched an investigation after the comments were made last month. 

It said: “These remarks were found to be contemptuous and have caused a serious reputational damage to the GFF, which can lead to future revenue loss.

“In this regard, the Committee has decided to punish TMT Football Club with a 10 points deduction in line with Article 20 of the Disciplinary Code of the GFF. The points deduction will take immediate effect.

“Furthermore, TMT is also requested to offer an unreserved public apology, through the same channel of communication within seven days, failure of which will lead to an automatic punishment of a D20,000 fine.”
