Shocking.....

At least six people have died in a stampede outside a stadium hosting an African Cup of Nations soccer game in Cameroon, an official said Monday.

Naseri Paul Biya, governor of the central region of Cameroon, said there could be more casualties.

The stampede happened as crowds struggled to get access to Olembe Stadium in the Cameroon capital of Yaounde to watch the host country play Comoros in a last 16 knockout game in Africa's top soccer tournament.

Horrible news. No doubt a combination of greed and incompetence have led to tragedy.

Awful news:

Jesus that's awful.

Reports of crushing at the weekend in the Premier League

The Euro 2021 Final could have had a similar story.

I think the whole system of queuing to get in stadiums needs reviewing, especially for the big games.

Call the fucking thing off. Horrendous and ridiculous tournament from start to finish, riddld with incompetence.
FIFA, Cameroon government and African FA are all culpable
