Yong Sport Academy, YOSA, tops the list of clubs that owe their players with five months of arrears and allowances not paid.
Information from the Cameroon Association of Footballers, AFC , highlights the fact that most Cameroon ‘professional’ football clubs do not pay their players.
In Elite One, Yong Sport of Bamenda owns its players five (5) months, Unisport of Bafang and Canon of Yaounde owe three months each and Panthere two months.
For Elite two clubs, National Polythenic belonging to the same proprietor as Young Sport is also owed five (5) months, Aigle Royal of the Menoua five (5) months, Scorpion of Mbe and Botafogo of Douala four months each.
The Professional Football League seems not to be preoccupies with such a situation as it has not made any pronouncement on the situation.
The non- payment of the players has been attributed to the amateurism and poor management, though there is general atmosphere of financial hardship for Cameroonian football clubs.
Despite the harsh financial situation some clubs still live up to their contractual obligations.
The clubs noted for paying their players regularly are: Astre of Douala, Cotonsport of Garoua and Njalla Quan of Limbe in Elite one.
While in Elite Two Dragon of Yaounde and APESJES of Mfou also pay their players regularly. These clubs are worth emulating.
