Victoria United Awarded Three Points, Consolidates Elite 2 Summit.

MTN Elite two league leaders Victoria United have been awarded three points following a premature end of their match day 13 clash against Unisport of Haut- Nkam at the Bafang Municipal Stadium on February 12.

The Bafang base side was leading 1-0 after David Caleb scored midway through the second half,  but in the 92nd minute – Samuel Nzelle brought down Victoria United forward Elias Jonas in the penalty and the referee pointed to the spot for a penalty. The fans couldn’t hold their emotions as they invaded the pitch and molested the match officials – leading to a premature end of the game.

In addition to the point deduction, the club will have to pay a fine of 5 million FCFA as part of the sanction.
