UMS of Loum Starting XI against Feutcheu FC UMSFEU2019 (www.kick442.com images)

Numerical advantage has always done the trick both on and off the pitch. With the announcement of no payments of gate fees, the stadium is sure to be filled to the rafters.

News reaching kick442.com indicates that the much awaited CAF champions league preliminary fixture between Congolese giant’s AS Vita, and Cameroon powerhouses UMS of Loum would be free for all to watch.

The fixture already promises entertainment for the football loving fans in the nation, barely 48 hours before Gabonese referee, Angelo Malekou takes a long blasts of his whistle at 3:30 CAT time in the Stade Ngoa Ekele.

Football stakeholders have once more done their part as they did last season with free entrance to the stadium. In that occasion, Coton Sports of Garoua were the beneficiaries but they did not utilize the “12” man as they were ousted in both CAF CL and the Confederations cup in quick succession.

UMS is now representing the nation and given that just 2 clubs are doing so, all and sundry should take this golden opportunity to lift the team above the treacherous sea. The hawkers, business men, journalists and men of all other works of life are invited.

Coach Charlemagne Mbongo and his boys are definitely going to need the support of the fans in their home patch to sneak a win in what looks a complicated fixture.

UMS of Loum have a good record in the Ngoa Ekele stadium. During the championship playoffs, they lost only a single game out of 5 ‘en route’ to their second league 1 title.
