Cameroon Elite Football Pre-season: PWD Bamenda & Yong Sport Academy abandon Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament. But Why?

With Cameroon professional football leagues (MTN Elite One and MTN Elite Two) fast approaching later on this month, every club around the nation is doing their best to stay fit before the season kickstart.

We have seen clubs like Canon Sportive of Yaoundé, Colombe Sportive of Dja and Lobo, Astres and Union Douala etc all play at least 3 friendly matches so far.

However, this is not the case with North West base clubs as two MTN Elite One clubs in PWD  Bamenda and Yong Sport Academy have abandoned Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament which was scheduled to run from 4th of October to 11th of October 2022 in the PS Ntaafi field.

NB: The Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament was created before the start of the 2021-2022 Cameroon football championships by some North West journalist and Elites to help prepare their Elite teams before official championship. Since the start of the tournament, four clubs have been participating which are PWD Bamenda, Yong Sport Academy and Rangers FC Bafut and Foncha Street FC.

BraggsSports gathered information that few days before the commencement  of the Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament, North West FECAFOOT President Mbigha Felix, published a communique announcing that construction works for the Bamenda modern Proximity stadium at the PS Ntaafi field will commerce this week.

EDITOR’S PICK

With due respect to the communique from North West FECAFOOT President, organizers of the Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament had to decide a new venue for the second edition of the pre-season tournament. The uncompleted Bamenda Municipal Stadium (Home to PWD Bamenda few years ago) was chosen to host all the matches.

After the Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament had already kickoff earlier this week (Tuesday, 4th of October 2022), the North West FECAFOOT President Mbigha Felix published another communique restricting the use of the Bamenda Municipal stadium.

Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity TournamentThis decision has left many fans and lovers of football in the North West baffled as they hoped to enjoy their teams play at home since they missed such an experience starting from last season after which President of FECAFOOT, Samuel Eto’o relocated Elite championship to four corners of the nation amidst  the use of grass pitches for the elite matches.

Some fans and lovers of the game have threaten the FECAFOOT President of North West Region to not step out into the population or else he will face the consequences.

Reports reaching BraggsSports that the Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament has been shifted to the GS Nibung field after the North West FECAFOOT President Mbigha Felix disclosed that the reason for the Bamenda Municipal stadium being out of consumption is as a result of a court injunction which has not yet be resolved.

However, lovers of the game and some prominent followers of sports activities within Bamenda are not satisfied with the North West FECAFOOT President’s clarification and deem it “LIES” as the Bamenda Municipal Stadium has been in use all these while by other regional teams until it was time for the Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament to play there.

What may then be the valid reason behind all this story, could it be greed, or politics? What can we say?

Because, the role of every club is to protect its players, the two participating MTN Elite One clubs, PWD  Bamenda and Yong Sport Academy decided to pull out of the tournament as they deem the GS Nibung field is unsafe amidst the crises in the North West Region.

This decision has made the organizers of the Bamenda Pre-season Solidarity Tournament to abruptly put an end to the tournamnet.
