This is a communique realized by FECAFOOT acting general secretary, Benjamin Didier Banlock

It should be noted that, Cameroon Elite footballers have suffered from the hands of unpaid salaries to very low wages as low as 25000 XAF in the last couple of years. This made things difficult for an elite footballer to be unable  to rent even a one room house for themselves without another hustle. Some elite players even complaint of not being able to purchase their own football boots.

Could this be a new dawn for Cameroon Football and footballers?
