- This year’s Super Cup will be played at the Douala Reunification stadium on Sunday
Wednesday, September 27 – The Secretary General of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) has signed a release moving this Sunday’s 2023 Cameroon Super Cup from Limbe to Douala, kick442.com can report.
According to the document published on FECAFOOT social media handles, Blaise Djounang who serves as the administrative head (SG) of the institution confirmed the move, while stating they had to change their plans due to the absence of the Limbe Omnisport stadium.
The annual 10 Millions FCFA prize money fixture which pits the Elite One winner against the Cup of Cameroon champions has a date between Cotonsport and Fovu of Baham this season.
According to the latest adjustment, Sunday’s game will be played at the Reunification stadium in Douala while all other aspects remain as initially announced.
Elite One winners, Cotonsport of Garoua will confront Fovu of Baham – 2-0 winners of last Sunday’s Cup of Cameroon contest against PWD of Bamenda.
Renew of eternal rival::
Fovu and Cotonsport will renew their age-old Elite One rivalry, which has produced some unforgettable matches in past years.
Fovu finished fourth in their pool during last season’s Elite One championship, but held Cotonsport to a goalless draw at their fief – that alone highlights their ability to make life difficult for the record Elite One winners from Garoua..
This weekend’s fixture will produce the team to bag home the trophy Bamboutos FC scooped, after defeating Cotonsport 1-0 in Bafoussam.
The past two editions of the trophy won by Stade Renard in 2020 and Bamboutos FC in 2022 have been played in the West Region. There was initially excitement when the Southwest Region was picked as host, but that joy has been curtailed.
The football loving population of the Littoral Region will have butterflies in their stomach, as another big event returns to town months after they received the exciting playoff tournament through which Coton won their record 18th domestic championship title.
Coton has a poor return in the Super Cup, but coach Daniel Breard will be hoping to relaunch his season through this game and heal the pains of a pre-mature elimination from the CAF Champions League.
Fovu’s coach Ndoumbe Bosso will certainly have a special motivation for the game, given the circumstances through which his working relationship with Cotonsport was terminated in 2021.
