Two basketball teams from the neighboring countries, Senegal and Mauritania will join the Gambia to celebrate the presidents birthday.

This was disclosed at a press briefing yesterday by the GBA Secretary General Abdoulie M.B. Jallow, who told reporters that this would be the first time that the newly selected Gambia Basketball national team will be showcased internationally.

He further revealed that the tournament will commence today where the Gambia Basketball national team will clash with the Senegalese team at the Independence stadium at 19:00 hours.

He said on Friday, Senegal will played Mauritania at the same venue and time, adding that on Saturday, Gambia will play Mauritania making the final round of the game.

The best two teams will play the final on Sunday. He expressed optimism that the Gambia will win the final on Sunday.

He said the tournament is in collaboration with the ministry of youths and sports through the National Sports Council saying that they have been working these past few days to make sure that the tournament is properly organised.

He outlined that the Gambia is playing on the Birthday of the president which he said is most appropriate in organising the tournament and invites all basketball lovers to come and support the team.
