Following heavy criticism for the delay in the sale of entrance tickets to the stadium for the finals of the 2016 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations, the Local Organizing Committee finally came out of this silence to make available to interested football fans the prices and points of sale of tickets to access the stadium.
Cameroon Concord News learnt that tickets will go on sale today November the 8th, 2016 in Yaoundé. The news was made public by Jules Eloi Minjeme, the Director of Sports in the Ministry of Sports and Physical Education. Jules Eloi also indicated that the prices range from FCFA 1000 for the popular tribune, 5000 FCFA for tribune A and 2000 FCFA for stands A and B, while the rostrum will be reserved for holders of a invitation.
Our chief football reporter say five major selling points of these tickets are now known. They include the Ministry of Sports and Physical Education, the Multipurpose Sports Palace in Yaounde, the National Institute of Youth and Sports, the Yaounde Omnisport stadium and the Cameroon Football Federation head office. Thus, only the city of Yaoundé, hosting Pool B of the 10th edition of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations has ticket outlets. Once again, the Anglophone city of Limbe, one of the two host cities has been kept out of the ticket sales.
