All elements usually required by CAF are now in place for the football jamboree.
The teams and guests are already pouring in for next Friday (19 November through 3 December) event of the female AFCON. Infrastructure is completed. Most especially the Omnisports stadium in Limbe is just waiting for the event. Cameroon Tribune took special interest, last weekend, on the 20.000-seater Limbe Omnisports Stadium, one of the two major play grounds of the competition after the Mfandena in Yaounde. The Limbe stadium whose construction works by a Chinese company, started in 2011, is today a jewel.
As shown round by the Director of the Limbe omnisports Stadium, Mrs. Ekombe nee Wanki Pascaline, the players’ four dressing rooms are spackling clean and finished. The turf is under mower by experts specially trained for the job. Medical and ticketing rooms are ready. Parking lots are under machine compacting. Electricity is flowing with the playground completely lighted. The water taps are sprinkling and the conference rooms are wholly equipped.
The first international match on the Limbe Omnisports Stadium last 28 March, 2016, against South Africa witnessed by CAF and Cameroon’s top Officials was already testimony to the Country’s readiness for the games today. Six months down the lane, things can only have changed for the better. As accompaniments to the occasion, the Tiko – Limbe road whose bitumen was giving way has been patched up for smooth and bumpy-free circulation. Access roads to the stadia are attractively paved.
