The final of the Laurent Charles Boyomo Assala (LCBA) tournament which was played on Friday 24 May 2019, witnessed an active participation of fan clubs for the two teams that were involved. The Corporate Communications (CO) field triumphed over the Journalism team 2-0.
A centre of attraction during the sporting event was the performance of two fan clubs particularly that of the journalism field, who were unique in their style of dressing. They put on white T-shirts with the words “best team” written on them. They identified themselves with the boys they had come to support as the colour of their outfit was similar to that of the players who put on white and blue jerseys.
This was contrary to the way the Corporate Communication fan club presented themselves. They didn’t have a uniform outfit as the journalism supporters.
Notwithstanding, that didn’t prevent them from cheering their team to victory, after a match which was dominated by the C.O. squad.
It all started when the kickoff of the encounter was signaled by the sound of the referee’s whistle. Both fan clubs started doing everything possible to quell down the voices of the opposing side. This was done through dance steps coupled with irritating and demoralizing songs towards the opponent.
Incessant screams of “le but” could be often heard any moment a menacing action came up at the goal post of the adversary.
The journalism goalkeeper nicknamed “le chat” was a favorite for the journalism fan club. He was noted for indicating to the supporters through a wave, for them to increase their cheers.
At the 31st minutes of play into the first half the first goal was scored by the Corporate communication team which saw their fan club rushing into the pitch with all the energy they could muster to cheer and hug the boys for a job well done.
During half time, the fan clubs and a dance group that performed traditional melodies from the littoral Region profited to animate the public that was present.
At the 11th minute of play after returning for the second half, the Corporate Communication team got a free-kick which was considered an opportunity to increase their lead. Their fan club cheered so hard for a second goal as the set piece was executed but the gods of football weren’t with them at that particular instant.
The excitement and tension at that moment almost saw some of the fan club members entering the pitch with their whistles and vuvuzelas
However, they finally got into the field in their numbers when the final whistle was blown. The corporate communication fan club was the first to run into the pitch to celebrate with their champions.
For the journalism students, they equally rushed towards their boys to encourage them and congratulate them for their efforts.
