The Cameroon Football Federation (fecafoot) has confirmed that Louves Minproff will represent the country for the zonal qualifiers of the inaugural CAF women’s Champions League this year.
According to a letter signed by the Secretary General of fecafoot Benjamin Didier Banlock, the Cameroon regulatory football body has resolved to register players of the Centre regional outfit at CAF for the prestigious women inter-club competition.
Louves Minproff is required to submit the names, licences, jersey numbers and date of birth of 30 players to fecafoot before May 25. Other conditions to submit include the nationality of the players, the colours of the club, medical certificate and copies of the player’s passport amongst others.
This is to ensure Cameroon respects the June 30th deadline set aside by Africa’s football governing body to its member association, to submit the names of her representatives for CAF competitions.
With the Women Super League still in its 12th day, officials decided to name last year’s winners Louves Minproff as Cameroon’s pioneer representatives for the maiden women’s champions League competition. The defending champions who have dominated football in Cameroon for over a decade, are currently second of the current season, level on points with leaders Awa FC with 30 points.
On 30 June 2020, the creation of the CAF Women’s Champions League was approved by the CAF Executive Committee Meeting. Six teams will qualify for the final tournament through zonal qualifiers. They will join two teams from the host country.
The regional playoffs to determine the eight (8) participating nations for the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League begins in July. The competition will be launched later this year.
