Amongst several clubs rehabilitated into the Elite Championships in Cameroon initially relegated during the 2020/2021 football season by a recent decision of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) is Foncha Street FC of Bamenda. The team finished in the bottom ranks of the Elite Two Championship table and was subjected to playoffs that confirmed their relegation.

However, the team like many others will not play in the inferior regional league following their rehabilitation into the Elite Two Championship for the 2022 season. 
To ensure the team performs better than the previous season, several decisions have been taken including the appointment of a new manager, the recruitment of new players and the transformation of the team to public liability Company as required by FECAFOOT. 

"My God's grace, Foncha Street FC succeeded to maintained herself at this level and so we are trying to do things differently. The players we have may not be those we wanted to have as we selected from those who were available and as time is going we are building something. We hope that before the start of the season we will have a very competitive team. So far so good, the players are responding to all what we are putting in place." Soh Simplice, Foncha Street FC new manager said

The gaffer believes that as the season draws near, his team will be ready and will certainly do better than last year. He also indicates that the team has been reshuffled with about 80percent of the players coming in new.

According to him "the management is putting in everything to make sure the team has a better season." 

The team has recruited players from Elite One side Yong Sports Academy (YOSA) FC, Panthere du Nde, Djiko FC of Bandjoun, National Polytechnic FC,  Option Sports and Universal Soccer Academy amongst others. 

Foncha Street FC qualified for the Elite Two Championship in August 2019 during the national interpools in Bertoua under the leadership of Moh David as president.

Currently managed by a board of Directors, it is expected that the team will do better though still subjected to difficulties of infrastructure like many other teams in the North West Region. 
The team shares the dusty St. Paul Comprehensive High School field in Nkwen with at least four other teams in region for training.
