The 2023/2024 football season kicks off next Saturday at the Ombaka stadium, in centre-west Benguela Province, with the dispute of the Angolan Super Cup, between title holders Petro de Luanda and Académica do Lobito (defeated cup finalist).

The information was shared on Sunday on Radio 5, by the president of the Football Federation (FAF)’s Technical Council, José Neves.

According to the official, the start of the First Division National National Football Championship (Girabola2023/24) should take place on the 13th of the current month, with the possibility of a new draw or maintenance of the recently prepared schedule.

To remind that the season was initially scheduled to kick off on September 3rd, at the Tundavala stadium, in the city of Lubango (Huila), but it was postponed due to a corruption case denunciation, which involves the clubs Petro de Luanda, Académica do Lobito and Kabuscorp do Palanca.

Also indicted are the president of Kabuscorp do Palanca, Bento Kamba, the club’s general secretary, Marximina Luzia Bernardo and coach Agostinho Tramagal.
