THE Skating Federation of Portugal (FPP) released the new competitive calendar for national roller hockey. The entity chaired by Luís Sénica foresees the competitive resumption of the 2nd National Division (competition with the presence of the Academic – North series) and the 3rd National Division (proof that Oliveira do Hospital – series C is present) for the weekend of February 20th and 21st. In addition to the resumption of the tests, the FPP changed the competitive model of the 3rd Division.
The final of the Portuguese Cup was also rescheduled for April 25.
The new confinement forced the suspension of the 2nd and 3rd Division and the National Under-23 Championship. In view of the restrictions, the Portuguese Skating Federation also decided to postpone the dispute for the Portuguese Cup, and, after Saturday's meeting, announced changes in the competitive model that would allow the competitions to be completed.
Pointing to a resumption after Carnival (February 16), the FPP intends to play in the late days of the Nationals of the 2nd and 3rd Divisions (and sub-23) from February 20, resuming the normal course of competitions – 12th round of the 2nd Division and 9th round of the 3rd Division – in the middle of March (13th and 14th).
