The president of the Cameroon football federation (FECAFOOT) Prince Seidou Mbombo Njoya has re-echoed the desire to have a return of football activities in the country in September.
September 26 could end an over six months mass unemployment of footballers in the national top-flight Championship as the the 2020-2021 Cameroon Elite One championship season kick off has been penciled for that date except the CoronaVirus pandemic situation gets out of hands.
A recent Tweet from the ‘El-supremo’ of Cameroon football just after Wednesday’s meeting with the minister of Sports and physical education Professor Narcisse Mouelle Kombi confirmed earlier suggestion of a resumption in or by September.
Football activities in the country have been grounded since the outbreak of the Corona Virus rife in March this year leading to untold hardship for most if not all stakeholders.
Last month, this online portal aired reports of a resumption of competitions on the above-mentioned date without fans while the second-tier Championship willl resume in October in similar circumstances.
The abandonment of a part of the Elite One championship for the 2019-2020 season last May prevented the relegation of Clubs across the board.
This situation mandates the upcoming season to have 20 Clubs in the top-flight while the second tier Championship will have 12 Clubs.
A handful of Clubs have been adding bodies to their squad in view of the eagerly-awaited resumption.
