The Southwest Regional Football League has been slated for January 4, 2020, reports say.
The league that was expected to start this year has been pushed to next year as clubs continue to train.
A series of preseason tours and tournaments have been organised to keep the clubs busy as they wait for January to commence the new season. Close to 26 clubs will be taking part in this season’s championship as the quest to break the jinx to get a League Two club in the region continues.
Clubs like Buea United, Victoria United, LIFCA, Best Stars among others have made trips to the Littoral region ton measure strength with Regional league clubs in the region.
Meanwhile, at the level of the region, clubs in the major towns like Kumba, Buea, Limbe and Tiko have resorted to preseason tournaments as they wait for the new season.
Some clubs in the region have started preparations months ago while some are yet to register for this season’s championship. With players’ transfer saga going on the region and clubs putting up better management, the new season seems to be an interesting one.
Meanwhile, in an interview to The Post, the President of the Southwest Regional League, Thomas Ndive Molungu has called on all stakeholders to put hands on decks for the new season to be a better one.
To him, it’s only when all stakeholders are involved that the championship can bring back glorious moments like those in the days of Victoria United, Mount Cameroon, Elect Sport amongst others.
For close to a decade, the region has not picked a direct qualification for League Two despite being blessed with standard infrastructure.
