The Cameroon Amputee Federation ,CAMPUTEE,hopes to use the tournament as an opportunity to raise awareness on the existence of Amputee football in the Country and the need for support from people of goodwill.
The Amputee Lions of Cameroon participated at their first ever Africa Amputee Cup of Nations in Angola in 2019.
Their poor run at the 5th edition of one of the continent’s fattest growing sports was anticipated following their abandonment by government .
This move by CAMPUTE ,pundits have described it as a step towards the right direction.
Amputee Football is played by persons who are amputated by either a leg or an arm. This is to encourage them to come out from their predicament and live in an open society and have the feelings of belonging to an inclusive society for all as stated by the United Nations Organization, UNO.
An Amputee match is played 25×2 with seven players per team.
Since everybody loves to be part of a great idea, no support is small for the CAMPUTEE.
