Groups Complete for Angola World Cup

After the success of B World Cup of Canelones, it's time to start thinking about the next A World Cup that will happen next year in Angola. As we know this will be an important event for the history of roller hockey in Africa since is the first time that an African country host the main World Cup. Angola's authorities are promising the best ever roller hockey world cup, so everybody is getting excited to see what will happen. Africa is the continent of the future so roller hockey must take advantage of this event to promote our sport in other African countries.

From Canelones were selected the last 3 countries to participate in A World Cup, one of them a great news for Africa roller hockey, South Africa!! Thus 3 African countries will compete: Angola, Mozambique and South Africa.

Next you can find the arrangement of each group of the World Cup,where also Austria will take part for the first time of it history.

Angola Organization Commitment is doing also an excellent marketing job using some of the roller hockey competitions to promote the World Cup, and also through video ads on TV. Here is one of them:

Rolling Together wishes that this World Cup can be the right way to a huge development of roller hockey in Africa. Although for that happen CIRH must improve the work of CIRH SUB COMMITTEE – “Development of Africa” founded in 11.04.2011 (circular here), without a noutable work until today. 

As the Slogan of The World Cup says "VAMOS LÁ!!!"  (Let's go there!!)
