The Cameroonian Football Federation (CFF) has announced on Wednesday the suspension of all football activity in the country because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision came after the country reported four cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

"To prevent the coronavirus from spreading across the country, the Cameroonian Football Federation decided to suspend all the domestic competitions across the country. Public health is the priority. We call upon all the player to follow the health recommendations to combat the virus," Seidou Mbombo Njoya, president of the football's governing body in Cameroon said

It is worth mentioning that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) decided to postpone the African Nations Championship, due to take place in April, until unknown date.

The CAF had previously announced that that newly-built Japoma Stadium in the Cameroonian city of Douala would host the CAF Champions League one-match final.

In a statement, CAF said that Cameroon has been selected to host the final, which will be held for the first time on a single match.

“The newly-built Japoma Stadium in the Cameroonian city of Douala will stage the final of the premier continental club championship on 29 May 2020,” the statement read.

The final is set to take place on Friday, May 29.
