The Confederation of African Football CAF, is expecting its member associations to provide names of their representatives for the 2020-2021 CAF Champions League and Confederation cup on or before August 31, 2020.
The Coronavirus pandemic has forced several championships to be ended prematurely, with over Over 90% of the representatives in the inter_club competitions already known.
In Cameroon, the football season was prematurely ended on May 12, 2020, by a decision from FECAFOOT’s executive committee. PWD of Bamenda, Astres of Douala and Louves minproff were crowned champions of the elite One, elite two and women’s league respectively, but other major competitions, notably the Cameroon cup that was still in its preliminary round, was abandoned complete.
As tradition demands, the elite One champions, PWD of Bamenda, will fly Cameroon’s flag in the CAF champions league for the 2020_2021 season. The major doubt and uncertainty has been which team will represent Cameroon in the CAF Confederations cup, given that it is the winner of the Cameroon cup, that usually takes that spot.
In his recent media out in yaounde on Thursday July 16, 2020, FECAFOOT’s president, Seidou Mbombo Njoya was asked to throw more light on Cameroon’s second representative in the continental competitions, but he says he is still waiting for a decision from the competent authorities.
“The competition [Cameroon cup] as you know, always come to close the sporting season in Cameroon. So you understand that it is a competition that doesn’t concern only us”, Seidou Mbombo Njoya said.
“We are waiting to see what the competent authorities will say concerning that. So we are listening from them and so far as we don’t have any reply, we can not take any decisions concerning the team that will represent Cameroon in the CAF Confederations cup”.
Many have tipped cotonsport of Garoua who finished runners up in the elite One championship, to take up Cameroon’s second continental spot, but it’s now certain that the cotonnites will wait a little longer before knowing if they will take part in the CAF Confederations cup or not.
