The 2018 Gambia Volleyball Federation’s new season will kick off on Friday with a Super Cup showdown at the independence stadium in Bakau.

Fans all over the Gambia are looking forward to this great match-up at the curtain raiser as Gamtel/Gamcel women volleyball team go up against GAF the league champions. In the male opener, Brikama face Interior.

It promises to be a mouth-watering contest between both clubs who have rosters laden with great players and there is the added spice of Brikama’s brilliant youngsters.

For some times down the history lane Brikama has been a club struggling to truly modernize.

Perhaps the biggest contribution Pa Barrow made was to install a culture of winning and eventually revamped the academy set-up, the fruits of which are now falling from the tree.

Brikama reached to their ever wish mark last season, and eventually won the cup final against Gamtel.

For Interior, in recent times, they seems to lose that rhythm even though they still have players in the big ranks and many reason that they not a match to the young Brikama side.

The games starts at 6pm on Friday.
