COVID19 Aid Funds to Football Federations: FECAFOOT Clarifies Its Situation
Amidst COVID 19, FIFA and CAF promised money to its Member Associations. A promise that has not yet been materialized, leading to dissonant voices from the amateur club association.
In a public correspondence to FECAFOOT, ACEFAC ( The Association of Amateur Football Clubs of Cameroon) claims that money has come and other federations on the continent have received and shared, but in Cameroon, the federation has been silent over this financial assistance.
This complains comes in after the World Football governing body FIFA made a release on its website fifa.com on Friday, April 24, 2020, announcing the disbursement of the sum of 150 Million USD to all 211 member associations to assist the football community which has been affected negatively by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the same light, CAF’s Emergency Committee held a videoconference meeting on Thursday, May 28, 2020, and approved the immediate distribution of financial grants to its Member Associations to support the local management of football hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. A global sum of 10.8 million USD will be transferred to the 54 member associations of the continent as part of a relief plan intended to ease the financial burden of the African football community in these unprecedented times.

In a press release on May 28, 2020 president Henri Balla Ongola of ACEFAC called on the heads of amateur clubs, members of ACEFAC, not to accept any donations from FECAFOOT, in as much as the behaviour of FECAFOOT looks more like a misappropriation of the subsidy that FIFA made available to member associations.
It’s in these moments where some try to cast doubts on the FA’s action that Parfait Siki, the communication boos came out to clarify public opinion.
“FECAFOOT just like the other world federations haven’t received a penny.
It is useful, in these times of all-out demands, to know that neither FECAFOOT nor any of the 211 member associations have received special COVID 19 support from FIFA. Similarly, CAF has so far paid no aid in connection with the COVID 19 to football federations in Africa”, said Parfait Siki.
He went on to explain that the aid received by football stakeholders especially players of the elite championships is a personal action from the Federation
“The support and solidarity actions of FECAFOOT for professional and amateur players are funded by the federal budget. As soon as FIFA or CAF support funds are available, FECAFOOT will make it a duty of transparency to report on its use for the benefit of football players”, he added”.
FECAFOOT has been one of the first federations in Africa to take action in the form of financial and material support of teams and players.
The COVID 19 pandemic has hit the world economy and football businesses are on the verge of collapsing worldwide. Financial aid from National, continental and world football governing body is meant to keep the game alive and active.

Speaking shortly after receiving the gifts, Valentin Dangwang Digoue, Technical Director of Sahel FC expressed his satisfaction maintaining that this unprecedented initiative will go a long way to support players who are facing some difficult moments in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic. Several beneficiaries also expressed their sincere gratitude to FECAFOOT for thinking about them during these tough times.
Information say, the Adamawa and Northern Regions have already stored their donations and should in the next few hours start distributing them too.
