CHAN 2020: “I took 100 and not 300 tickets,” Geremi Njitap on ticketing controversy

Due to the CoronaVirus Pandemic, the Cameroon government has limited the number of persons to view a football game. It doesn't go down well with fans who have waited for close to 50 years to host a senior Men's competition. Here is the CHAN, but only 25 percent of the stadium is to be used. News broke earlier during the week that the likes of former Lions right back, Njitap had taken most of it, which infuriated the locals. Here's what the FIFPRO president had to say!

The President of Synafoc (Syndicate of National Footballers Association), Geremi Sorele Njitap, has spoken out on the controversy surrounding the rapid sales of tickets for the Cameroon against the Democratic Republic of Congo encounter.

Talking to after witnessing the last training session of the Intermediate Lions before Cameroon’s quarterfinals showdown, the former Real Madrid man was reasonably livid.

“They’re lots of false messages going through social media.

“The national syndicate of Footballers that I represent took the initiative to bring some of her members to be involved in this CHAN festival, and even encourage their colleagues because they all play in the local Championship.

“What I saw on social media was really disheartening.” He said.

“Those who have to be given the privilege are the players of our local Championship.

“We took a hundred tickets” (contrary to social media reports). “So we now have 100 members who will come. All dispositions have already been taken”. The 2000 Olympic gold medalist opined.
