The meeting - which will only have representatives from Luanda (only teams from the capital are disputing the top division event) - aims to decide on the outcome of the event, as a result of the Covid -19 pandemic, according to Tony Sofrimento, member of the federation’s Management Committee, speaking on Tuesday to ANGOP.
He explained that associations, outside Luanda, will be able to participate in the meeting via skype or whatsApp.
The National Championship was interrupted when three rounds were left until the end of the regular phase, before the play-offs, with Petro de Luanda as leader (49 points) and 1º de Agosto in second position (44).
