FECAFOOT’s president, Seidou Mbombo Njoya has stated that the FA has taken a decision that favours all the actors involved in football in the country.
The Cameroon Football Federation on Tuesday May 12, 2020, decided to end the 2019_2020 football season in the country, crowning PWD as elite one champions, Astres of Douala as League two winners, and Louves Minproff as winners of the women’s league. No team will be relegated from the various league’s, while the Cameroon cup and the various amateur league’s, will no take place.
Speaking over the Cameroon Radio and Television (CRTV), Seidou Mbombo Njoya said “we took a decision that does not frustrate any team. No team will be relegated, league one will be played with 20 clubs next season. So we took a decision that guarantees a certain Sporting equity”.
The league one championship had six match days left, while the league two and women’s league were left with three match days each. Seidou Mbombo Njoya added that the decision to end the season abruptly, comes a thorough analysis of the current situation, by all parties involved.
“The executive bureau of FECAFOOT, examined the report of the medical commission and after talks with the Technical Transitional committee, we thought it wise that it was important to put an end to the current season, because we can not take a risk with the lives of players”.
“If we had to continue with the league, it means we have to screen all the players and teams, and we don’t have the means to do that”.
It is now certain that for the first time since 1941, there will be no Cameroon cup. The FECAFOOT’s boss says they will meet the concerned authorities in the days ahead.
He however assured Cameroonians that Cameroon remains the host of the African Nations championship (CHAN) and the 2021 African Nations cup, which will be reprogrammed, when it is necessary.
Cameroon therefore joins a list of many countries, who have recently put an end to their championships, amidst the wide spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
