This was at the end of an extraordinary general assembly meeting on Saturday, July 12, 2014.

The association of amateur football clubs, ACFAC, met in an extraordinary general assembly on Saturday July 12 in Yaounde to adopt a common stance in the present cacophony prevailing in football in Cameroon. The association probably benefitting from the fact that the president of the Republic ordered an inquiry into the debacle of the Lions to address a memorandum to the Head of State.

In the memorandum, the amateur clubs called for the reintegration of some clubs which were excluded in the Regional championships in the Littoral and Far North. This reintegration they said should be accompanied by the rehabilitation of suspended officials as their suspension resulted from electoral disputes.

The association also called for the compensation of clubs following the suspension of the competitions by FECAFOOT during the World Cup period. They are also asking for a share in the fall-outs of Cameroon’s participation at the 2014 World cup in Brazil. Concerning the upcoming elections in the federations, the amateur clubs called for the exclusion from the process of clubs created after June 13, 2013.

They equally called or the effective launching of competitions in youth and feminine football as well as futsal and beach soccer. For reasons of clarity, the clubs also called for the publication of the revised statutes of FECAFOOT which was adopted by FIFA since March 21, 2014. The paradox is why the amateur clubs had to submit their complain but to the President of the Republic when there is a Normalisation Committee specially put in place to rectify the woes of Cameroon’s football.
