Although the draw has already taken place, only seven teams have the player licensing process on the 'Fifa Connect' platform completed and, of the 16 teams eligible for the championship, 12 have the licensing process in progress.
The information was provided by José Neves, president of the Technical Council of the Angolan Football Federation (FAF), who did not reveal the names of the emblems that have already finalized or have processes in progress.
"The majority of clubs have not complied with the player licensing process on the 'Fifa Connect' platform. They have incomplete documentation. Therefore, we are in an order of six to seven legal teams", said the official in statements to the channel Radiodifusão Nacional de Angola and quoted by Jornal de Angola.
