The direct consequence of the suspension of football activities linked to the COVID-19 pandemic is the precarious financial situation in which local players and supervisors are now plunged.
Aware of the difficulties of players and supervisors in this crucial period, the Cameroon Football Federation has decided to support the clubs of Elite One, Elite Two and First Division of the Women’s Football League of Cameroon, by supporting players and supervisors. In the case of players who were to benefit from a monthly salary, the urgency is felt.
Indeed, many of them complain about their precarious conditions, even more in less affluent clubs whose means are lacking.
In a letter addressed to the presidents of clubs, the Secretary General of the governing body of football in Cameroon announced: “FECAFOOT after consultation with the Transitional Technical Committee (CTT) and the Cameroon Women’s Football League (LFFC), decided to provide special support to 25 players and supervisors from each of the Elite One, Elite Two and Women’s Football League First Division teams ”
A measure welcomed by players whose financial situation is under severe strain due to the suspension of competitions. Indeed, having lost their main source of income, there is now a long wait for them to resume activities.
