Cameroon league one giants, Canon Sportif of Yaounde have edged closer to penning down partnership deals with Cameroonian air carrier, the Cameroon Airline Corporation, Camair.Co.
According to sources around the outfit, the club presently led by President Benoit Placide Mevoua are negotiating on partnership that will see the club travelling to numerous match venues using the Camair-Co airline with chosen destinations including Garoua and Douala in the North and Littoral regions respectively.
The deal, if finalized, sources say, will equally ensure the 10 time Cameroon League one holders receive financial support from the company. The team will also have its funds collected nationally by the air transportation structure.
While awaiting the confirmation of the deal in the days ahead, 26 players of Canon of Yaounde are expected to travel to Garoua via a Camair-Co aircraft on Monday April 12, 2021 ahead of the outfit’s delayed day 6 fixture of the Elite one championship against Coton Sport of Garoua on Wednesday.
The Camair-Co collaboration is expected to be one of biggest partnerships signed by the capital city club this season.
The 11 time winners of the National Challenge Cup, the Cup of Cameroon have penned down numerous financial and equipment boasting partnership this season including sponsorship deals with food producing company, BROLI.
The club equally signed kitting deal with Belgian kits producers, FURA. It entered into partnership with financial structure CNPS and the Yaounde Council.
These, as the club’s management embark on the bid to reviving the outfit- after going through years of hurdles, having last won the league 19 years ago in 2002 and last lifted the Cup of Cameroon in 1999. Periods of turmoil that saw the “Megok Megonda” suffering relegation to the second tier and surviving relegation in some occasions through near scandalous office decisions.
Their efforts have for the moment, proven fruitful with the “Kpakums” counting 3 wins in their first four games of the on-going Elite one football championship in Cameroon. The team managed by Coach Minkreo Birwe and Samuel Noufessi have gathered two major wins against Yong Sports Academy of Bamenda and in-form Panthere Sportif of Nde to count 9 points in pool B.
