The Cameroon Football federation (FECAFOOT) has reinstated New Stars of Douala to the Cameroon Elite One championship in conformity with Court of Arbitration for Sports’ decision of 15 September, 2020.
According international court of arbitration for sports, it was illegal to New Stars FC of Douala to be relegated in the end of the 2018-2019 season.
The Swiss court had sanctioned favour of New Stars of Douala in a a case against FECAFOOT and ask for reinstatement to the Cameroon top-flight Championship with immediate effect.
The ruling was sent to FECAFOOT on Tuesday, September 15, the Swiss Court bringing an end to the suspense in the battle between both parties.
New Stars missed the entire 2019-2020 season because of this legal battle.
Therefore president Faustin Domkeu’s
New Stars of Douala team will be in the top-flight Championship whenever it resumes.
As it stands the Cameroon Elite One championship has 20 participants without UMS of Loum who are also in a legal battle.
The court also asked FECAFOOT to pay 3.500000 FCFA as damage compensation to New Stars of president Faustin Domkeu. Kick442.com can’t independently confirm if the that has been done or not.
New Stars of Douala considered as one of the most vibrant Clubs in Elite One, having won the Cup of Cameroon in 2017 and participated in the CAF Champions League and Confederation in not less than three occasions.
In a related development, Elite Two outfits; Aigle Royal of Menoua and Lion Blesse of Fortuni were relegated in similar circumstances and in the same season but recently won their cas4 against their relegation at the Cameroon national Olympic and Sports court. FECAFOOT has equally implemented that decision.
