The FAF sports technical committee chairman, Jeremias Simão, confirmed the direct inclusion of the Benguela team, the only one that responded positively to the federation's request to hold a match between five participants.

He said that with the rejection of other teams the governing body of football validated the request from 1º de Maio, as the team said to be ready to participate in the competition.

1º de Maio has won the national championship of the first division twice (1983 and 1985) and the Angola Cup on three occasions (1982, 1983 and 2007).
