Elite One: YOSA threatens withdrawal from Elite One

By Mangek PromiseY


Young Sports Academy of Bamenda have this Tuesday November 21 issued a communiqué indicating that they are not comfortable with the routine of issues at the MTN Elite One Championship. A communiqué from the management of the team stated that the team has been in deep difficulties due to the refusal of Fecafoot to play games in Bamenda for about 3 years. This has forced the team to fight relegation and reduced their chances of winning the championship.


A portion of the communiqué stated that...


"If before the start of the second round of the championship to begin on December 6, 2023, which is two years after a field was promised to us, nothing is done, Yong Sports Academy of Bamenda will withdraw from elite football and consequently it will be an opportunity to free all players since it will be a transfer window."


Since 2021, Young Sport Academy and PWD Bamenda have been forced to play their home games in Bamenda because the national bureau of Fecafoot considered only up to standard stadiums to host games which the City of Bamenda has none.


The Bamenda based team also indicated in the communiqué that their stadium,Young Sport Arena is available to use if Fecafoot deemed essential. YOSA lost to Victoria United in game day 8 in a 2:0 scenario that the fans considered to be triquetrum and detrimental to their success in Elite Football.


Their communiqué comes days after the fans of PWD had given an ultimatum to the president of the club to either ensure that games are played in Bamenda or the team be named PWD Mbouda.


State officials including the Prime minister, the President of Fecafoot, among others had promised the construction of a standard football stadium in Bamenda but it is yet to yield fruits.
