[26/11/2020] - Suspension of participation in the Amputee Football League

After the interruption of the first "National Amputee Football League” competition while the Nkamanyi Amputee team was already on the pitch in Yaoundé, about to take on Terminators AFC of Yaoundé, we have had to do an internal reflection and evaluation about our further participation. While it is unclear to us how the competition is scheduled and covered, we realize there are a couple of things that need to be put in place before we continue the games.

It is important for the public and all stakeholders to understand what we stand for and what not. Our aim is not to win games. Our aim is not to be the best team. Our aim is not to attend great competitions. We are not in a rush. Our aim is to empower kids through football. We want to use football as a means of empowering the amputees to be able to lead a normal life. We have already talked to the players and know how they intend to see their lives. What we are doing now is evaluating and developing plans to see this happen. We want to concentrate our efforts on that.

We shall continue the competition when conditions are OK. Read more
