Tonnerre Kalara football club and Coton Sport involve in match fixing scandal

The former president of Tonnerre Kalara Club (TKC) Yaoundé, Antoine Essomba Eyenga, has told the world during a televised interview on Canal 2 International that his club sold a match to Coton Sport of Garoua to help them win the League 1 championship in 2014. Antoine Essomba Eyenga who also served as director of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) said the match fixing arrangements were ordered by the leadership of the Cameroon Football Federation. Said the controversial Eyenga: "Coton was neck to neck with Racing of Baffoussam, they just needed a point".  The match was played in Obala and the Federation gave the appointed match officials standing instructions to make sure Coton Sport get the point they badly needed. 

The former Tonnerre chief executive who blatantly refused to reveal whether Tonnerre players were involved in the match fixing process, however indicated he was now making public the information because Coton Sport refused to return the favor the following season when Tonnerre were in trouble.  In terms of the outcome of the said match counting for the 14th day of the Super League and played in December 2014, Coton Sport won with a score of 4 goals to 1.
