The recently appointed officials of the Cameroon women’s Football league were installed to their functions on Friday September 06, 2019, and now have daunting task of making women’s Football in Cameroon more attractive.
Shortly after their installation, one of the recently appointed officials, Mrs Ufei Nseke Anoma discussed about their immediately objectives. “The immediate projects will be to look at the Championship, to see if we are going to play second division at the national level or regional level, how many teams are going to have at the national level”. She added “we are lucky the president of FECAFOOT just informed us that he has found some sponsors for us. So we are going to try and put things in place and make it better than there were before”.
“We are going to feminise female Football, in the sense that we are not looking at only players. We are looking at training administrators and getting more women’s involved in refereeing, more women involved in football administration and in coaching and the technical aspect of the game”.
Women’s Football in Cameroon has recently been given much attention, but Mrs Ufei Nseke thinks it is because of the great performances of Cameroon female teams, at international level. “Female Football has been existing for quite some time, but I think due to how well we’ve performed at the the international stage, the world cup two times, nations cup many times, FIFA felt Cameroon should be honored. Cameroon is the first country in Africa to have a female League that is not attached to the male league and we have a lot of work, to try and put things in place and since it is the first time, make sure that the young people who are coming after us will inherit something solid and something that we will be proud of”.
The five woman committee headed by Celine Eko, will lead the women’s Football league for a transitional period of two years. Their mandate is expected to end on September 3rd, 2021.
