The Gambia National Olympic Committee was formed in 1998 with its origins going back to 1972 under the then government Directorate of Youth and Sports.  It was registered as a full member of the International Committee in 1976.

The management structure of the NOC is made up of a two-tier governing council called the Executive Bureau and the General Assembly.

Currently the GNOC has 21 affiliated sports associations.

The body is engaged in making sporting related courses available for coaches, providing a forum for workshops, sports administration attending international conferences and seminars, monitoring and encouraging the participation of women in sport.

In 1996 the organisation developed an idea called SIPP or the Sports Infrastructure Initiative. This was to aid the governments in its desire to decentralise sports to the various regions of the Gambia. The ideas is to have a small stadium in every one of the six administrative regions and to set up in each a facilities complex where promising sportsmen and women can train. The first two to open their centres were Serrekunda East and Farafenni in 2007.
