On the minister’s shortlist are six in the West Region, five grounds each in the Center and Littoral regions, four in the Southwest and two in the North region of Cameroon.
The annexes of the Olembe, Japoma, Limbe Omnisport plus the Roumdje Adja Stadia have all been drafted into the shortlist.
For the first time in three seasons, modern pitches at the center of the Littoral Region and the Roumdje Adja Stadium in Garoua makes the cut.

The minister however failed to point out when the Covid-19 prevention measures which restricted the practice of football in the country will be relaxed or completely taken off.
In addition to the above-mentioned grounds, Clubs that own and previously use their grounds like YOSA of Bamenda, UMS of Loum, Stade Renard of Melong, OFTA of Kribi will stay at home for home games in the upcoming season.
This move is far from indicating a ceasefire as the Cameroon Professional football league management body and the Cameroon football federation have reached cutthroat scenario in their verbal and legal battles.
This situation kept other football stakeholders in big time limbo as Cameroon’s number of months without football extend to seven.
