After receiving credit from some football pundits on the quality of infrastructure used in the ongoing AFCON 2021, Cameroon’s attention is now tilted towards hosting the 2030 World Cup.
Latest news coming in from goal.com reveals that Cameroon has started nursing hopes to host the most prestigious football tournament, the Word Cup.
According to goal.com, Cameroon already shows evidence of playing host to a competition of any magnitude.
For a country to qualify for the hosting rights of the World Cup, she must possess and present 6 stadia of at least 20 thausand capacity each; a criterion which the country of Samuel Eto’o has already validated.
Sixty thausand seater Paul Biya stadium in Yaounde, 39 thausand Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium,
30 thausand capacity
Roumdé Adjia Stadium and Douala’s Japoma 50 thousand seats are some of the stadia Cameroon could boast of. Aside these,
Limbe Omnisport Stadium with the ability to contain 20 thousand people and the Bafoussam Omnisport stadium which has same capacity, are adequate for Cameroon to play host to the 2030 World Cup.
However, Cameroon will have to step up the number of stadia to 9 inorder to meetup with the expanded 48-team competition in 2030.
Cameroon remains one of the counties with the best World Cup record in the Africa, having reached the quarter finals in 1990.
It is hoped that the bilingual country makes its intentions to host the 2030 world cup officially know in the days ahead.
