- Cameroon’s Elite One Football Championship Makes a Comeback on February 17, 2024, Following Weeks of Pause During the Africa Cup of Nations
- With just four playing days remaining, teams are preparing fiercely to either secure their elite one spot and play for the prize or prepare for the relegation playoff.
- The transfer window has given an opportunity for some teams to make readjustments and new additions in preparation for the upcoming demanding fixtures
As the dust settles from the Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon’s Elite One Football Championship is set to resume on Saturday, February 17, 2024. With only four matchdays left, the stakes are high for the 19 participating teams.
Matches for Day 15 have been programmed across various stadiums for both Saturday and Sunday.
In Pool A, the high-flying team Dynamo of Douala is set to clash with the Yaoundé-based outfit, Canon Sportive, at the Mbappe Leppe Stadium.
Bamboutos of Mbouda, currently holding a strong position, aims to ascend the league standings even further. Their opponents, Aigle of the Menoua, won’t make it easy. The Bamenzi Stadium in Bafoussam will witness a thrilling encounter between these determined teams.
Coach Gabriel Zabo’s debut with the Brazilians of Bepanda promises excitement. They face off against Gazelle FA in Garoua.
Union squares off against fourth-placed PWD of Bamenda in Mbouda. Both teams are hungry for points, and this clash could significantly impact their league standings. The last game in Group A will be between AS Fortuna and Colombe Sportive at the Ngoa Ekelle Stadium.
Group B fixtures promise to be even more intense, with title holders Cotonsport keen on consolidating their top position. They travel to Mbouda to play against a president-less Yong Sports Academy. Meanwhile, Fauve Azur welcomes UMS of Loum in Yaoundé, and the Stade of Melong hosts Apejes of Mfou in Mbouda. The Centenary Stadium in Limbe will host the game between Victoria United and Avion Academy.
Ahead of this challenge, many teams have been gearing up with unyielding determination. Friendly games have been the order of the day as many hope to be fit and build cohesion amongst the old and new recruits.
Certainly! Let’s revise and organize the paragraph for better cohesion:
Astre of Douala secured a 2-1 victory over AS Dibamba, while Union Sportive triumphed over Botafogo GSM with a one-goal-to-zero scoreline. Victoria United made light work of Legend Football Academy, winning 3-1. Meanwhile, Aigle of the Menoua and Stade Renard played to a one-all tie on Friday in Melong. Dynamo of Douala suffered a defeat against AFA but managed to catch up with a one-all draw against Caiman of Douala. Bamboutos of Mbouda emerged victorious with a 1-0 win over Panther Sportive.
The recent transfer window has provided elite teams with an opportunity to make crucial changes. These adjustments are aimed at ensuring their success. Astre of Douala has replaced Ernest Agbor with former Indomitable Lionesses trainer Gabriel Zabo. However, they may lose their goal poacher, Jules Armand Kooh, to Dynamo, who is desperate for a striker to replace the transferred Leonel Ateba.
Jean Eric Moursou, formerly of Cotonsport of Garoua, now plays for French League Two side Valenciennes FC. Leonel Ateba has been unveiled at UMS Alger, while Faya Boy Arnold Eba continues his season with Egyptian top-flight club Future FC. Union’s Alexandre Kuate is off to Cercle Sportive Don Bosco in Congo.
Additionally, Mathias Malep has signed with UMS of Loum from Angola, and Dynamo of Douala’s defender Tresor Feumba has moved to Panther Sportive in the second-tier championship. Les Bon Ba Djob has acquired the services of Nouma Oum Di Giovanni from AS Fortuna.
