Bamenda Olympic Stadium to be constructed in 6 months

The future Bamenda Stadium
On April 20 2016, FECAFOOT laid the foundation stone for the construction of the Bamenda Olympic Stadium.  The ritual was carried out by the North West Governor, Adolphe Lele Lafrique and the President of FECAFOOT, Tombi à Roko. 

According to news reports, the stadium will have a capacity of 2500, it has the latest generation of synthetic turf, team dressing and Press rooms, TV Studio, VIP Chamber, Officials room, restaurant and Olympic running tracks. It has the provision to handle at least seven sport disciplines. Building works have been to costed at FCFA 780 million by the time the keys will be delivered on September 30, 2016.


  1. wow thats a baeutiful structure there

  2. 780 million or billion?am confused here.that kind of amount only for 2500 seats?

  3. That's awesome but what about dressing rooms cuz the structure shows there isn't any

    1. dressing rooms are included in the structure

  4. another pull for embezzlement...development in cameroon and its wahala...nonetheless, great piece of news

  5. Cameroon tribune like crtv with their unmerited, immature, funny journalists who write articles without proof reading them and use unrealistic figures. Why couldn’t they use the right amount which was 780million? Why use billion? If Limbe which was built for 35 billion francs had a 20000 (twenty thousand) seating capacity, how come Bamenda will cost 780 billion (almost 22 times that amount) but yet has a 2500 (two thousand five hundred seating capacity)? Most of these biya journalists need to be fired from their post because all their articles always have mistakes and one begins to wonder if they were written while sleeping or written in a mad rush. That seating capacity is even too small for a town the size of Bamenda, this is more of an insult. I guess in places like Ebolowa and Bertoua they will build 1000 (one thousand) seating capacity stadia.

  6. At least half a loaf of bread is better than none...we appreciate it though we know our country
