SportFishing: Angola miss world championship

Luanda – Angola fishing team will miss the world Fishing Championship to take place from September 29 to 06 October in France, due to financial issues, ANGOP has learnt from the vice-president of the Angolan SportFishing Federation, Rogerio Matos.

According to the official, who was speaking on the causes that led the national team to quit the competition, the federation had until last June to register for the event, but failed to do so due to the lack of EUR 45 to 50,000 for the team’s expenses.

This was expected to be the third time the national would participate in the international championship following their last presence in 2013 in France, which the team finished in the penultimate position.
