This online portal has gathered from it’s sources at the Cameroon football Fédération,FECAFOOT that the institution has a planned revenue of 40 Millions FCFA to distribute to players and coaches of it’s three national championships.
FECAFOOT plans to pay 50000 FCFA per player to footballers in the Men’s Elite One championship, 30000 FCFA per player to those of the league two Championship and 25000 FCFA to each footballer in the Women’s top-flight championship.
As reported on Friday, FECAFOOT will pay 25 footballers per club for 32 clubs in the men’s football championship and 20 footballers per club for all 12 clubs in the women’s championship.
We have it from top sources that the money will be paid directly into the Orange Money accounts of the footballers whose names will be submitted by the clubs.
The payments will begin as soon as all clubs submit their lists of players.
The federation is ready to pay and the process can begin by Tuesday.
It is the first time in decades that FECAFOOT is reaching out directly to local players not in tge national team with a financial package but in August last year, the federation made a similar move shouldering the expenses of clubs at the 2019 National Inter-pools competition in Bertoua.
The national championships in Cameroon were suspended on March following the outbreak of the CoronaVirus pandemic.
Players and coaches of 18 men’s topflight clubs, 14 second tier men’s clubs plus 12 women’s league will benefit from the move.
The sum of 40 Millions FCFA will be distributed 1040 personnels who have not been on the pitch for a FECAFOOT organized for a month.
Stakeholders have welcomed the move.
Tantoh Melvis of Awa Ladies has described the move as timely intervention from the football house.
“This is a great move from the FA, we are very grateful. This will keep us motivated and ready whenever the championship begins”. Melvis stated.
The president Mbombo Njoya led FECAFOOT in the same release encouraged footballers in the domestic championship to strictly respect the measures put in place to prevent the spread of the CoronaVirus.
