The South regional council has pledged to foot all the bills of the representative of the South region at the interpools tournament which kicks off in the nation’s capital, Yaoundé, this weekend.
The President of structure, Emmanuel MVE ELEMVA, the first ever captain of the indomitable lions (1972) presented the cheque to the management, technical staff and players of Olympique de Biwong-Bane, OBB, during a farewell ceremony this Friday in Ebolowa.
The Event at the Ebolowa 1 council hall took place in the presence of Governor Felix Nguele Nguele, and a host of authorities, and custodians of the tradition and fans. The Administrator has promised the flag bearer of the South region that he will galvanize members of the elite to give them the necessary moral and financial support to spur them to the second division.
Traditional rulers present during the occasion gave their blessings to OBB through their captain, to secure their place in the elite 2 next season.
It will be the second participation of OBB in the interpools in five years, after their failed debut in 2019 in Bertoua.
The team travelling to Yaoundé to play in Pool B against teams from the Northwest, Littoral, North, and Adamawa is made up of 23 players, amongst whom the current captain of the under 17 indomitable lions, Pharel EVINA.
All eyes and hopes in the South region are on OBB given that struggling OFTA of Kribi have been relegated to the regional league following their poor performance during the last season.
