The Angolan Football Federation (FAF) today annulled the title of the Angola Supercup to Sagrada Esperança, following a protest by Petro de Luanda, due to the fact that it was played in one hand, contrary to the regulations.
The decision came from the Ordinary General Assembly of FAF, held today, in Luanda, with 14 votes in favour, four against and four abstentions.
The regulation states that the Super Cup must be played over two legs.
In September 2021, Sagrada Esperança beat Petro de Luanda, 4-3, on penalties, in the Angolan province of Benguela, after a 0-0 draw in regular time.
FAF vice-president José Carlos Miguel said today that, at the time, the governing body of Angolan football had the consent of the two clubs to play the game in one hand, due to the restrictions imposed by Covid-19.
Petro de Luanda, once again, publicly denied the FAF and said that it was a unilateral decision by the Federation.
