The end-to-end attack and counter-attack between officials of the Cameroon football federation (FECAFOOT) and their affiliates of the Cameroon professional football League (LFPC) has another twist.
Just under three weeks after the FECAFOOT executive committee members sat and decided to withdraw the LFPC’s competence in running the domestic championship citing a cross-section of inadequacies, the court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) in Switzerland has ruled against that decision, per a release issued this Friday, November 20th.
“The rights of the Cameroon professional football league have been reinstated,” a part of the release read.
This plunge Cameroon football into another difficult phase at a time when peace talks are ongoing between all parties and members of the government.
Last year, FECAFOOT suspended the LFPC citing gross violation of its statutes, and went on to create a transitional technical committee (CTT) which managed the top-flight and second-tier domestic leagues.
A few weeks back, the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne ruled against the 2019 suspension, thus echoing the need to reinstate LFPC.
Unfortunately, attempts to do so with FECAFOOT’s conditions met resistance from Mr Semengue and his LFPC team.
Football has been off in Cameroon for over eight months, initially because of the health threats of the CoronaVirus pandemic and now the conflicts between institutions in charge of managing the game.
Cameroon is expected to host next year’s African Nations Championship and events of the past three months have simply placed banana peelings on the path of the footballers and coaches preparing for the event.
