Women’s Football today as you know is one of the most important event of the century and we want to give it all the attention it deserves”, Seidou Mbombo Njoya said while installing the committee.
“Ccameroon is a household name in the continent and there are talents here no doubt about that, so we have given the responsibility to some women to take in charge their football”, he added.
The committee has as main task to develop the women’s game from grassroots level to the top while ensuring the perfect organisation of the Women’s football championship. They are also tasked with encouraging and promoting more women to get into football management and administration.
