16 teams were on the starting block, divided into four groups of four teams each, along the axis of the four major communities of the Sub Division; Nchaney, Besaah, Misaje and Dumbu.
Each group represented a community within the Misaje subdivision, Donga Mantung division of the North West region.
The tourney is currently at the semi-final stage. On Sunday August 24, 2022, Calvary FC of Misaje will clash with Brothers FC of Nkanchi while Alhilal FC of Misaje will challenge Kemezung FC of Dumbu in the second game.
So far the tournament has been exciting and crowd pulling every match day. This is considered a feat as few communities in the troubled North West region can host football tournaments of this caliber considering the security challenges in the Region.
The tournament has seen talents, spectacles and goals. Brothers FC Nkanchi has produced the most prolific attack, scoring 17 goals and conceding seven. KFC Dumbu has kept a cleansheet this far and netted 13 times. Kitu Jaffred of KFC Dumbu is the leading goal scorer with 05 goals in four games.
The tournament is sponsored by an elite of the area, Minister Fuh Calistus Gentry to the tune of 5 million francs CFA.
Organized under the Misaje Sport Empowerment Program, MISEP 2022, the initiative eyes the creation of a third division football team and an Athletics Club.
Players will be selected from the tournament to form the football team. Organisers hope to name the team Sodepa FC after a ranch operating in the community of Dumbu.
On the sidelines of the competition, an Athletic Club will scout talents from Misaje with the objective of sponsoring the runners to take part in next year’s Mount Cameroon Race of Hope in Buea, and other similar events. Members of the club will be sieved from a marathon to be organised as part of MISEP 2022. Some 30 athletes have registered for the marathon. The winner and two runners up will bag home cash prizes, organisers have said.
