The Confederation of African football (CAF) has appointed Andy Quamie to coordinate the Scorpion’s second leg of the double-header in Banjul against Togo on October 16th 2018.

This move came on the heels of the recent overcrowding of the Gambia vs Algeria first leg AFCON 2019 qualifier at the Independence Stadium in September.

The game was delayed over an hour amid worries over players’ safety after supporters forced their way in beyond the stadium’s capacity.

Meanwhile, Andy Quamie was elected at the just-ended 40th CAF Ordinary General Assembly in Casablanca, Morocco.

He is serving on the appeal board for four years, from February 2018 to February 2022.

In 2012, he was appointed as match commissioner for CAF. Since his appointment, he has gone on to commission several FIFA and CAF matches.

He was recently appointed as Liberia’s Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Youth and Sports by President George Manneh Weah.
