April 16th 2004 - The Cameroon National Football Team was fined with a six point
deduction from its 2006 World Cup qualification campaign. In addition the Cameroon
Football Association has also been fined CHF 200.000. These FIFA sanctions were
imposed as a consequence of Cameroon’s failure to comply with the equipment
requirements on the field.
The “SAVE-THE-GAME” –project
is an appeal protesting against the current disciplinary ruling against Cameroon
by the FIFA. The Initiative demands the withdrawal of the sanctions!
National Football Team of Cameroon recently appeared at the 2004 African Cup of
Nations (quarterfinals) in a newly designed one-piece playing kit (aka Cameroon
UniQT). According to the FIFA this behaviour is to be seen as a violation of Law
4 of the FIFA “Laws of the Game”. Although Law 4 pins down the rules
for international playing-kit standards on the field – shirt, shorts and
socks – the current disciplinary ruling against Cameroon is without merit
and has no precedent in the world of football.
the FIFA should decide to keep up the current disciplinary ruling against Cameroon,
the team hardly has a chance to pass the 2006 World Cup qualification campaign.
aim of the campaign is to collect at least 1 million online votes for Cameroon’s
National Football Team. These are to be handed on to the FIFA-Officials in Zürich/
Switzerland in autumn 2004.
