The Presidential grant was shared to representatives of teams who reached the finals of the cup of Cameroon this season.
In a meeting presided over by Sports Minister Ismael Bidoung Mpkatt last November 17, 2017, the sum of FCFA 26 million was shared to New Stars de Douala and UMS de Loum on behalf of the Head of State, President Paul Biya, who decided to support financially both teams in the bid to steam up preparations ahead of the Cameroon cup finals.
The support was handed respectively to Mrs. Kwewo, representative of UMS de Loum, and to Faustin Domkem, President of New Stars de Douala.
The Cameroonian Cup finals which will be played this weekend will be an occasion to celebrate the values of sports in the country.
That is why apart from the financial grant, the meeting was also an opportunity to call on various commissions in charge of the organisation (security, communication, health care, animation, mobilization and of decoration) to make everything possible for the event to be successful.
