The President of Options Sports Academy of Limbe, Awantoh Henry Neba has given to his players the sum of FCFA 500,000, money made available by FIFA through FECAFOOT as part of the COVID-19 Relief Fund made available to clubs.
This amount was handed to the team captain of the club, Chenwi Julius Nebangwa, on Tuesday, December 22 at the Limbe Community Field as the club goes on Christmas break.
“I officially have to you the subvention fund of FECAFOOT and FIFA. FCFA 500,000 and it will be a good thing for you to thank FECAFOOT and FIFA,” President Awantoh Henry Neba told the captain of the team.
In a message send to kick442.com, the Secretary-General of the South West Regional League of FECAFOOT Sylvester Esowe Muambo said 23 out of the 26 clubs in the Southwest Regional League, had received and work was still on for the remaining clubs to receive.
Chenwi Julious Nebangwa, Captain of Option Sports while receiving the money from his President extended the teams gratitude to FECAFOOT and FIFA.
On behalf of Options Sports Academy, we want to thank FECAFOOT for this gesture. It has been a long way but we want to thank them for recognizing us during this COVID-19 period.”
Option Sports has stamped its mark on the SW Regional League ever since they won promotion from the Divisional level in 2019. With Club President Awantoh Neba, the team is slowly gaining popularity amongst the established clubs in the region.
Before the start of the Regional League this year, the President and his team had organized friendly encounters with League one Champions PWD Bamenda and the Limbe Community field. The team also had a friendly with Panthère or Nde, and a host of others. They also travelled to Douala for a competition.
It has been a good start for the new regional league football season for Option Sport in Pool D. In their first game against a well-known Victoria United the team succeeded in winning one goal to zero.
President Awantoh will be hoping that the good start continues when the league resumes after the Africa Nations Championship that concludes in February. Option Sports will be on standby on match-day two before taking to the pitch on match-day three to face Best Starts Limbe. With the goal of going further than the mini interpool, like most teams in the region, the first victory for Option Sports puts them in a good footing to achieve their set objectives this year.
