BYC vs Real de Banjul return leg in Bamako offThe Club can confirm that the return leg of its CAF Champions League preliminary qualifier match against Barrack Young Controllers of Liberia has been called off.

The cancellation of the match comes after the Mali Football Federation’s decision not to allow Barrack Young Controllers play as hosts for the said match scheduled to be played at the Stade du 26 Mars in Bamako on Sunday, March 1st 2015.

Real de Banjul hosted Barrack Young Controllers to a 1-1 draw in the first leg tie played at the Banjul mini stadium two weeks ago and preparations were well underway for the return leg this weekend.

This news comes just shortly before the team and delegation began its journey to Bamako for the said match.

The Club has contacted the Gambia Football Federation and expressed its disappointment with the said decision.

The Club would now patiently await CAF’s intervention on the matter.
