AFCON 2021: Olembe stadium six months to the African football festival

Cameroon will be hosting African football with 24 teams for the first time and five stadiums have been authorized by the Confederation of African Football, CAF.

The Olembe 60,000-seater stadium will host the opening and closing ceremonies of AFCON 2021.

The playground, seats, dressing rooms, training grounds annex 1 and 2 are ready.

Finishing touches at the entrance and around the stadium, yet to be completed but work is going after a series of strikes by workers demanding outstanding pay.

The commercial centre and hotel are almost complete, and it should be noted that these are not part of the exigencies of continental football body, CAF.

The construction of this complex has been slowed as contactors changed from Italian to Canadian (Magil) now present on site.

By November, the stadium would be officially handed over to CAF for the competition.
