MLS sought role in Cameroon soccer league–report

Posted on 07 October 2008 by ASN Staff

U.S. corporations, including Major League Soccer, sought prominent roles in restructuring soccer in Cameroon, according to a story by allAfrica.com. The project, known as SYFODA (System du football durable) aimed to create infrastructure, medical and marketing structures with MLS’ role to assist in creating a plan for a new professional league in Cameroon alongside integrated academies for youth development.

In a complex power play, the country’s Sports and Physical Education Minister, Augustin Thierry Edjoa, apparently used the project as leverage in pushing ahead his choice for Cameroon’s national team coach, Otto Pfister, according to allAfrica.com.
