Togo to host Gambia on artificial turf

The Gambia will play Togo at the 12,000-capacity Stade Municipal de Lomé, Gambia Sports can confirm.

The match, earlier scheduled to take place at the 30,000-capacity Stade de Kégué, was shifted to the Stade Municipal, a multipurpose stadium known for its artificial turf.

Gambia Sports understands that renovation works currently taking place at Stade de Kégué led to the game’s change of venue.

The Sparrowhawks will play the Scorpions in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Friday with the game kicking off at 16:00 GMT (4pm).

The match in Lomé will be officiated by Cameroonian Antoine Max Depadoux Effa Essouma who will be assisted by compatriots Elvis Guy Noupue Nguegoue and Sadou Hamadou.

The return leg takes place at the Independence Stadium in Bakau next Tuesday.
