FIFA announced their decision to appoint a normalization committee for the Cameroonian Football Association (FECAFOOT).

Following recent failed attempts by FIFA to reconcile the football stakeholders in Cameroon and overcome the current impasse, FIFA stated that committee’s mandate will run the daily affairs of FECAFOOT; draft new statutes in consultation with all stakeholders and in compliance with FIFA’s Statutes and standards as well as mandatory national law; identify the delegates of the FECAFOOT general assembly and of the regional and departmental leagues; organize and conduct elections of a new FECAFOOT executive committee.
The normalisation committee will be composed of an adequate number of members to be identified by a joint FIFA and CAF mission scheduled to take place very shortly. The committee will act as an electoral committee and none of its members will be eligible for any of the open positions in the elections.
The specified period of time during which the normalisation committee shall perform its functions shall expire no later than 28 February 2018.
It is not the first time that Cameroon has had a Fifa-approved normalisation committee one was established in 2013 after a ban from global football.
