The Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) has established a minimum wage for professional footballers in the country starting from the 2021/22 season.
The resolution was taken by four parties – the FECAFOOT, Association of Elite Clubs, Women Football clubs association and the Cameroon Footballers Union.
All Ligue 1 players are to receive a minimum salary of 100 000 FCFA ( approximately 1000 Ghana Cedis) whilst Ligue 2 players will be paid not less than 50 000 FCFA ( about 350 Ghana cedis).
This was one of the promises made by Samuel Eto’o to improve the welfare of footballers in the country and the law has now been enacted.
Also clubs are to prove to the FECAFOOT that they have enough funds at the bank to pay all wages of their players and staff for every month.
