Also, best players during this competition will be allowed to register for free under the Ako Eyong Sports Management company that will help get contracts for the players in clubs abroad.
Meanwhile, other Regional League clubs in Buea turned down the opportunity to be part of this maiden tournament for reasons best known to them. However, going by reports, it is believed that lack of unity among club owners amongst others is one of the reasons that some of these clubs are not part of it.
Going by the president of other clubs taking part in this tournament, the initiative of the tournament is to keep the players in form and also to foster unity amongst clubs and their presidents.
The tournament is organised by club presidents in Buea in partnership with the United Kingdom-based Ako Eyong Sports Management.
