Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya The Gambia had the opportunity to hold the Ahmadiyya Football League in May 2022.
Four teams were formed comprising of ten towns, and the preparation started two months prior to the event.
The qualifying rounds of the tournament were played from 9 to 11 May 2022, and its final was played on 15 May 2022. All these matches took place at the Football Field of Farafenni Senior Secondary School, and thus, we are very thankful to the principal of the school.
The final match and the closing session were covered by MTA The Gambia and the national TV of The Gambia (GRTS).
The closing session took place shortly after the final match at the headquarters of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Farafenni-NBR, which was attended by nearly 100 people. The session was chaired by Naib Amir and missionary-in-charge The Gambia. Naib Sadr MKA The Gambia, Area Missionary URR, and Area Missionary Barra Region were also in attendance.
The ceremony was also attended by some special guests, including Chief of Operation Police, Deputy Commissioner of GID (Gambia Immigration Department), Assistant Chief at Fire service, and Vice Director of Gambia’s leading network, Gamtel. They all had the opportunity to share their views on this league. The guests were presented with a gift of the book Life of Muhammad, and during the session, an exhibition was also organised, enlightening the guests about the introduction of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya.
