The latest region to produce their representative is the Northwest whose final was played on August 4, 2019. The football-loving family of Cameroon still await three regions to produce their representatives; they include Centre, Littoral and Adamawa regions respectively. This makes critics of the organising committee ask questions, as postponement in the commencement of the competition is a tradition due to delay from the various regional Bureaus in producing their representatives.

It should be noted that the dates and venues for these games will be disclosed by the organising committee in the days to come. Sports pundits believe there is a likelihood that the encounters will be played on neutral grounds, while the three teams at the top of their respective pools will automatically qualify for the Elite II championship next season.
