Initially scheduled for December 10, the 2016-2017 Cameroon professional football season has been rescheduled for January 21, 2017.
This is one of the resolutions of the Board of Directors of the Cameroon Professional Football League (LFPC), that took place on December 3 in Yaoundé, chaired by the president of the Pro League, General Pierre Semengue.
In order to justify reasons for the postponement of the kikoff of the Pro League, officials said it was due to the impact of the organization of the 2016 African Women’s Cup of Nations, AWCON by Cameroon on the commitments of the partners of the League and the unavailability of the Kuekong Omnisport stadium in Baffoussam which is to host the National Interpools from December 7.
This is not the first time that LFPC has postponed the kick-off of the Pro-League. Last year, it was postponed twice.
Although the League was to kick off before it was postponed, nothing has been said regarding subventions to clubs, innovations among others.
