The chairman of the technical council of the Angolan Football Federation (FAF), Nando Jordão, last Tuesday in Luanda advanced the possibility that the FAF will adopt strict measures to punish those teams that drop out of official competitions.
Speaking to ANGOP, the sports official revealed that this decision may be taken this year, probably in June, when it is approved the new statutes of the FAA.
"The current regulations are very soft and do not discourage negative situations which we have seen lately in the national first division football championship (...). So, there is a need to adopt stricter measures", he stressed.
During the swearing-in ceremony of his board last January, the chairman of FAF, Pedro Neto, revealed that considering the number of teams that drop out from the competition due to financial problems, the solution might be the reduction of the number of teams participating in the competition or operating a change in its format.
