Football: ARFSS distributes 300.000 escudos to the 2018/19 season Champions

Praia, Nov 14 (Inforpress) – The Santiago South Regional Football Association (ARFSS) on Wednesday handed over checks worth 300.000 escudos to the three regional champions, men (first and second division) and women, referring to season 2018/19.

Celtic Recreational and Cultural Sports Group, first division regional champion, received the largest share, 200.000 escudos, while Vitória Futebol Clube da Praia (second division champion) and the Seven Stars Youth Association (senior women championship winner) received a check worth 50.000 escudos each.

ARFSS President Mário “Donnay” Avelino told Inforpress that the money was reached under an agreement established with the Praia Parking and Mobility Company (EMEP) to promote and conduct football games to contemplate the regional champions during the 2018/2019 sporting season and subsequent years.

He underlined that this initiative is intended to “stimulate the practice of sports activities in the municipality of Praia”, indeed nowdays South Santiago has a sports policy that cuts with the past in which the championship was systematically suspended for lack of funds when played with eight teams to the detriment of the 22 currently competing (first and second division).
