The president of the Confederation of African Football is already in Cameroon. He welcomes the preparation of the competition by the government.

It was an admiring and satisfied Issa Hayatou who spoke on the mic of the microphone national television on 15 November in Yaounde. The President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) welcomes the preparation of the Women AFCON by the host country, Cameroon. According to him, the government “has done as much as we can“. This is evidenced by the drawing ceremony held last September in Yaounde. According to him it’s the best in the history of the Women AFCON. “From the draw ceremony, I am Cameroonian and as such I am a little interested because it is my country, we had never had a draw at the level of this competition – I am not talking of the great men AFCON – at the level of women as grand as the one we organized about a month ago at the multipurpose sports complex.

Issa Hayatou noted that the Cameroonians are joining the event that is taking place in their country as from Saturday. He welcomed the “big publicity” that he noticed around the AFCON during his stay in the country where he was born. He called on the public to come en masse to support the participating teams. Mainly that of Cameroon. “The team should also honor us by winning all the matches, the stadiums being busy. This is what contributes to the beauty of the event. My wish is that the stadiums are always full, that people come to encourage the teams, not only the Cameroonian team, much more the Cameroonian team but the 7 other group teams that will come to Cameroon as friends.
