Money problems stand in way of league start

Clubs are refusing to resumption the second round of the professional league saying the State must fulfil its promise of payment of subvention to them.

Many do not believe the Prime Minister Philemon Yang’s promise to pay the sum of 326 million francs to clubs taking part in Cameroon’s professional league. Club presidents say they cannot rely on mere promises to resume the league.

A general assembly of division one and division two club presidents, has been convened to take place June 23. The outcome of the meeting will determine whether the second round will resume or not.

The 326 million francs is the remaining part of 420 million Cameroon government promised to pay clubs.

The second round that was programmed to start on May 27, will only start on June 30 after the extraordinary general assembly scheduled to hold on June 23.
