2018 FIFA World Cup : Yaounde replicates the ambiance in Russia

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is on-going in Russia but Cameroonians can have a feel of the atmosphere through a World Cup Village set up at the courtyard of the National Museum in Yaounde.

There, a giant screen has been erected to enable football fans come together and enjoy the World Cup matches.

The screen has been placed close to stands where the audience can sit, eat, drink and enjoy every moment of the FIFA World Cup.

The stands are attracting different segments of the population including employees of the private and public sectors.

One of such is Fabrice Lobogo who watched the Senegal vs Poland match and states that the village is in close proximity with his office.

Damase Joel Ateba, another visitor in the World Cup village says the traffic congestion would have prevented him from watching the entire matches from home.

Mohammadou Adamu is amongst the many Cameroonians who believes it is more fun watching a football game in the company of friends.

Other visitors come to the village to enjoy interactions with others rather than to watch the matches.

In all the in-and-out movements,
Miss Njoya is making brisk business as visitors develop more interest in her painting exhibition.

She operates an entartainment site where food and drinks are sold besides exciting works of art.

The World Cup Village was opened on 15th June 2018 and will stay open through out the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
