LFPC’s tenure reinstated, FECAFOOT reacts

The Cameroon Football Federation, FECAFOOT has notified her reception of the letter from the Court of Arbitration for Sports, CAS reinstating General Pierre Semengue and his Professional Football League, LFPC to run league football in Cameroon.

The Communication department of FECAFOOT responded by accepting to render the decision suspending the LFPC and its long time serving president null and void.


In the press document from the FECAFOOT, the football powerhouse without reservation promised to respect the decision of the CAS to allow the LFPC organise professional championships in the country.

In this regard, the FECAFOOT in her communique published sometime after the verdict of the CAS has promised to hand down the decisions of the Court of Arbitration to competent committees of the federation for onward implementation.

The will be done during the Executive Commitee meeting of the FECAFOOT previewed for September 24 – 25, 2020.

Just to note that, the FECAFOOT and the LFPC have been in loggerheads on the management of professional championships in the country.

The cold war led to the September 3, 2019 Executive meeting of the FECAFOOT which ended with the decision to unseat Pierre Semengue and his LFPC.

The extraordinary gathering with actors of the FECAFOOT also led to the creation of the a Transitional Technical Committee at the FECAFOOT to temporally run the affairs of the supposedly suspended professional football league of General Pierre Semengue.

The latter refused to adhere to this decision and even turned the honary title of the FECAFOOT. He later went ahead to file a complaint to the Court of Arbitration for Sports in Lousanne, which recently ruled in his favour.

As it stands, Pierre Semengue is the legit president of the Cameroon Professional Football League, and the right person to organise professional championships in Cameroon.

The decision of the CAS comes just two weeks to the planned launched of the 2020/2021 Elite One football season scheduled for September 26, under the auspices of the Transitional Technical Committee considered illegal by the CAS.

The question that lingers on the minds of football analysts , football lovers and cameroonians is what next, as the local football is seemingly in a state of dilemma.

For now, the LFPC has not reacted .
