The event was opened by a gala match between Menchum North against Menchum South 

It was revealed by the main sponsor, Mr. Ndzo Celestine that the tournament would run for 2 months on a 5million allocation. 

The initiator said the objective is to occupy  many youths who have left the division and Yaounde during this period. 

It would also help to foster unity among people and build a framework for subsequent projects to be launched.

He added that a second objective was to identity talents in Menchum to possibly join the lions in future, reason why the event brought together some big names who would identity, train and nurture these talents to greatness.
