Yong Sports Academy YOSA was created following the absence of a first Division team at the time in the Northwest Region of Cameroon.
Moved by this absence, Mr Yong Francis now of late; a former football referee with outstanding love for the sport decided to start a football team in 2004.
Born a few years after some teams from the region like PWD FC and Kumbo Strikers were just relegated to the regional league, YOSA had a tough time beating these teams to get a ticket that will qualify them for a national tournament formerly referred to as Inter-polls that will enable the team qualify for the First Division Championship.
YOSA has gone on to become Bamenda’s most successful football club with one of the well-known names in Cameroon football with thousands of passionate fans across the country and beyond. The team shucked Cameroon when it emerged winner of the National Football cup in 2013.
