Barely 24 hours after the president of the Republic of Cameroon, Paul Biya made a clarion call for an end to the verbal war between Cameroon football stakeholders, the Secretary-General of the Cameroon Football Federation, Benjamin Didier Banlock has swung into action for immediate implementation by summoning a meeting of Club presidents for next week.
Presidents of the 35 Elite One and Two Clubs in Cameroon’s first and second-tier championships are expected to meet the Secretary-General on Tuesday at FECAFOOT’s head office at Tsinga.
“In preparations for the start of the 2020-2021 professional league season, Presidents of Elite One and Two Clubs are invited for a consultative meeting,” a part of the release read.
The meeting could be seen as a breakthrough for the local championships that have been bogged down by friction between local football stakeholders who have failed to agree for their common good since Covid-19 measures pave way for resumption of football activities.
Professionals football hasn’t been played in Cameroon since March 2020 and the situation has had a visible and anticipated negative impact on local football which can only be mitigated by a return to the pitch within the shortest possible period.
There have been gossips of a possible return of the local championship by the end of February. But unfortunately, kick442.com can’t independently confirm those reports but understands FECAFOOT wants a quick return to normal activities.
Monday’s meeting is therefore a decider for the future of professional football in Cameroon.
