Angola: Official Defends Professionalism Within Football League

Luanda — The creation of an Angolan football league depends on the adoption of a legislation for the sports professionalism statute, on Wednesday here said the chairman of the technical council of the Angolan Federation, Nando Jordão.

The official suggested as example the Portugal's model where as he thinks the clubs are more organized and accomplish the obligations and taxes.

Despite being a responsibility of the clubs, he said this matter must desire the attention and treatment from other country's institutions, so that legislation be adopted towards the professionalism.

The idea of institutionalization of a football clubs league in Angola was presented over 10 years ago for sports officials, but the proposal has not yet merited an adhesion although there are many debates with this regard.
