The facilities were put into use since last year.

The exigencies of a high-level competition like AFCON include the availability of training grounds.

Limbe and Buea today are boasting of five training grounds for international competition.

The facilities include the Buea Municipal Stadium and Molyko Omnissports Stadium, all in the Regional capital some 20 kilometres from Lime where the main stadium is located.

These stadia are called training grounds just for the sake of it and they can take any level of football matches be it international or local. The difference may just be the sitting space reduced to 1,000 and 2,000.

In Limbe, an annex of the Omnisports Stadium is another wonderful football pitch. The facilities all renovated from old pitches with utmost modern touches by Chinese companies have nothing to desire from any first world pitches, some experts have testified.

From today (26 July), the Limbe pitches will be technically received by authorities of the Ministry of Sports and Physical Education.

This will be pending a one year observation and maintenance by the Chinese company Tianyuaug Group.
