Cameroon will not have a second team for the 2018 African Confederation Cup.
The decision is contained in a correspondence addressed to the Cameroon Football Federation on Saturday 24th November 2018.
In the letter, CAF states that FECAFOOT has failed to meet the deadline for the submission of the second representative for the Confederation of African Football.
Back in Cameroon, bookmakers are agreed that CAF’s decisions is a logical consequence of the delays registered in the organisation of the final of the Cup of Cameroon.
The winner of the cup is automatically the country’s second representative in the competition.
Due to delays, the country failed to meet the deadline required by CAF.
The finalists Eding Sport of Lekie and Lion Blessé of Foutouni have been bracing-up for the final in the past three months.
Both teams have received each, a CFA 10 million aid package since Thursday 22nd November 2018 representing FECAFOOT’s support for the finals.
Sports authorities indicate that the clearance was expected to come from the Civil Cabinet of the President of the Republic.
The President of the Republic, it should be noted, presides over the match which marks the end of the sports season in Cameroon.
