UKFF’s Director of Football Ewemade Orobator has been given the “incredible honour” of managing the Cameroon Team in the UK African Nations Cup 2013 with the Final due to take place at West Hams Upton Park in June 2013 and with £1,000 prize for the winning Team.
Ewemade will attend the draw for the tournament at West Hams Upton Park and see which teams his side will have to face in the qualifying matches of a tournament that will take place over three weekends. 20 African Nations will be represented including the 2012 Champions Nigeria and the 2011 Champions Uganda.
“You will have to take part to see what a terrific tournament this is and the fact that the final is being held on a Premier League Ground and Kick Racism Out of Football are a key sponsor of the event, shows its magnitude. So to be asked to manage the Cameroon Team is an incredible honour and one I am looking forward to tremendously. I will search far and wide to select a squad to do the country proud and of course I am fortunate to have a number of players within UKFF who will not let anyone down.” added a delighted Ewemade Orobator.
