The Gambia Football Federation announced yesterday that it has apprehended two people allegedly involved in the illegal sale of Lacoste shirts with the GFF logo printed on them.
“The operation, with help from The Gambia Police Force (GPF), and the Ebo Town Police Post, arrested a man found with 25 Lacoste shirts with GFF registered crest printed on them in Wellingara,” the GFF said.
The shirts were recovered and confiscated but the suspect led the operations team to a shop in Banjul with a press machine where piles and piles of plain Lacoste shirts were found waiting to be printed with GFF logos for commercial gains.
According to the GFF, the two men were both escorted to the Ebo Town Police Post where they were later released on bail. The GFF warned that it will not allow illegal use of its regalia, logo or those of the national teams for commercial gains.
