Draws for the 8th finals of the football cup of Cameroon were conducted on Tuesday September 22 at the seat of the federation in Tsinga-Yaounde with four League one clubs to face each other. The defending champions, Coton Sport will lock horns with UMS of Loum while Panthere of Nde will slug it out with Tonnerre of Yaounde. UMS Loum will be no push-overs for the current Cameroon champion, Coton Sport as they eliminated the runners up of the League One championship, Union in the 16th finals.
Though Panthere seem to be in good shape after eliminating another League one side, Yong Sports, they will have to be careful with Tonnerre which is counting on the cup competition to salvage their season after having been relegated to the Regional league.

The 8th finals will also witness a fratricidal war between two emerging club from Ebolowa; Afamba of Ebolowa and Reste du Monde from the same locality. Dynamic of Buea will face Astres of Douala while Lion Blessé of Foutouni will clash with Stade Renard of Melong. The last fixtures will pit Aigle of Menoua and Botafogo.
