The kick-off of the 2020_2021 Elite one championship in Cameroon scheduled for Tuesday November 10, 2020, has been postponed.

The Cameroon football federation, FECAFOOT had programmed day one fixtures for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but it is now clear that those games will not hold as initially planned.

On Monday afternoon, a meeting took place at the FA’s head office in Yaoundé, between club presidents and officials of FECAFOOT, to map out an appropriate way to kick start the championship.

Our sources indicates that after consultations between both parties , the League’s opening games have now been postponed to Saturday November 14, 2020.

Current champions, PWD of Bamenda, were to host Stade Renard in Bamenda in the League’s opener, a game during which the Abakwa Boys were to be handed their 2019_2020 League winners trophy.

The Cameroon football federation is yet to make an official announcement on the postponement.

Earlier this month, the Cameroon professional football league, under General Pierre Semengue organizes a supposed league opener in Yaoundé between Panthere and cotonsport, but the other games did not take, till last Wednesday, when FECAFOOT’s extraordinary Executive committee decided to withdraw all the competencies of the LFPC as the institution charged with organizing professional football in the country.

This recent turn of events comes to confirm the doubts of many football lovers turned “Thomas’s”, who were not certain of the league will effectively kick-off.

Some teams had already travelled to other cities for their games, and will now have to go back without kicking a ball.
