They showed proof of collective football made in the Centre Province occupying the second place in the tournament. Ngoumou, the headquarters of the Mefou and Akono Division, located some sixty kilometres from the cosmopolitan city of Yaounde is no doubt a stage for the premiership next season following the qualification of Renaissance.
Renaissance, created in January 1999 has come of age. In the Yaounde pool they proved that, they were a force to reckon with through their collective play that thrilled many spectators. As interpools new comers, they sent strong signals of no pushovers when in their second game of the tournament, they walloped CPSM of Messemena from the East Province 5-0.
They continued the journey to greatness with an overwhelming number of supporters who constantly applauded each brilliant move of theirs at the Yaounde Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium. The days went by and they stood their grounds. Their huge flag of blue and white colours gave them a singular identity in the Yaounde pool. The T-shirts of this club that were regularly worn by fans and supporters of the team literally transformed the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium into a setting typical of Ngoumou. When they clashed with PWD Bamenda for the final of the tournament, they once more showed symbols of beautiful football made in the Centre Province. As Renaissance sliced in the equaliser in that game, the fans and supporters stood on their feet to full time.
Their outstanding paraphernalia gained greater attention with sycophants marching in triumph in a game that saw Renaissance tipped as favourite, home advantage withstanding. The odd-makers from Bamenda through the golden goal that dashed away the hope of Renaissance. It was written. Renaissance finished the tournament in the second position. All’s well that ends well. Today, Renaissance is par excellence, a first division team.
