The Cameroon Cricket Federation (FECACRICKET) has expressed its desire to canvass for facilities to accommodate the sport in Cameroon. The desire was made known by the federation’s president, Victor Agbor Nso shortly after being voted for another mandate on Sunday November 13, 2022.
“We have to see into it that Cameroon has a standard cricket playing ground so that we too can start hosting international competitions. We can’t only be going to play in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. It is high time we started organising international cricket competitions in Cameroon,” Victor Agbor Nso remarked.
Achieving the feat, he noted, is only possible with the adequate facilities and playgrounds: “That is where we are heading to and to make sure that our national teams get out there and play cricket like real indomitable lions and lionesses of cricket.”
With Cricket being a relatively new sport in Cameroon, the federation’s president notes that introducing it has not been all roses. However, it now boasts of domestic league structures and the federation owns its very own office. The next step, he told reporters, is continuity and consistency.
The Cameroon Cricket Federation, he said, is poised to “… continue with the zeal, the passion, and commitment that we embarked on this task of implementing and developing cricket in Cameroon”.
