FECAFOOT Revokes Construction of Bamenda Olympic Stadium

The Executive Committee of the Cameroon Football Federation, FECAFOOT has in a communiqué published on Friday June 14 stopped the construction of the ongoing Bamenda Olympic stadium of the North West Region of Cameroon. 

The communiqué released at the end of a meeting in Yaoundé does not clearly state the reason for this action. 

FECAFOOT announced the annulment of the partnership ties which existed with US-based Company Prime Potomac signed in April 2016 to handle construction works of some 4 stadia to be completed after 6 months: Bamenda , Bagangté, Bafia and Sangmélima.
