A budget of FCFA 95M has been approved as the amount needed to qualify PWD Social football club to the Elite One Championship.
The budget was adopted Tuesday during the general assembly of the historic team that also saw the renewal of the mandate of the management team led by Pascal Abunde as president for a period of four years and the recognition of the elected executive members of the supporters club led by Seidou Hamasani for a period of two years.
Talking to the press just shortly after the general assembly, the club president expressed the hope that the supporters club will constitute a veritable and reliable force behind the team.

“I expect this body to be more organized, I expect them to build a strong supporters base, I expect them to rally all the supporters in all the other regions ….so that we can have a very strong and powerful supporter base that can push this club to victory.” He said
On his new four years mandate and target Abunde said “our next target is to be where we are supposed to be. We think that Elite one is where we are supposed to be. Some people call Elite Two purgatory because it is very expensive, demanding and challenging to run. We feel that this second mandate will enable us to galvanize the resources that we need in order to take this club to where it belongs which is Elite One.” 

Amongst the challenges raised facing the management team is the realization of the team’s target of getting to Elite One this season and sourcing the FCFA 95M budget required for the project. 

Created as far back as 1962, PWD SFC rose to prominence in 1979 when they ended as runners up in the finals of the Cup of Cameroon in a 3-1 victory in favour of Dynamo of Douala. The team qualified for and was relegated severally from the top flight league in the country. The team played the Regional Division Two Championship in the NW for many years before joining the now baptized MTN Elite TWO Championship which has a national character in 2015. 

After missing relegation last season, PWD SFC Bamenda has returned this season with envied determination. Though at Press time they were still to take on As Matelot in a Day 9 fixture of the Elite Two Championship, the team is ranked second with 17points from seven matches. PWD remains the only team this season in Cameroon in both Elite One and Two that is yet to suffer a defeat both on home and away ground.
