Clubs taking part in the MTN Elite one and two championships, have set four main conditions for the Transitional council running the Cameroon professional Football league to meet before they can return to the pitch for the second phase of the championship.
In a communiqué signed by the president of the association of Elite clubs of Cameroon (ASEC) Pascal Abunde, the clubs have asked for the postponement of matches that were to be programmed.
“We have taken note of your various schedules for the return phase of the professional championship for the 2021/2022 sports season. Following this, we hereby ask you to suspend the related programming,” reads part of the note from the association of Elite clubs.
As part of their demands, the clubs are asking the Technical Transition committee to Settle unpaid player salaries, homologation of the away phase of the championship, Publish the list of suspended referees, and give the lists of the 35 players per club to avoid any dispute.
“The programming of matches without taking this data into account would lead to withdrawals, or even the disruption of the championships,” the clubs added.
The second phase of the MTN Elite one championship was initially scheduled to kick-off on Sunday 08 May 2022, but as things stands it is uncertain if it will go on as planned.
It is understood that the clubs are asking for their own share of the money the federation bagged home from their sponsorship deal with MTN Cameroon.
The first phase of the championship in Pool B of the Elite one championship had ended about a week ago, with last round of games in pool A for the first round of the championship scheduled for this Friday.
The Cameroon football Federation through its technical transitional committee, is yet to react to these new demands from the Association of Elite clubs of Cameroon, ASEC.
