Provincial de Luanda started last 17th June

Provincial is organized by APPL (source: MundoOk)
One more Provincial started in Luanda, capital of Angola! In one of the best championships of this Continent once again Angola wants to prove why roller hockey is growing year by year, and is reaching an important position in Angolan sports panorama. During the next weeks this championship will be disputed by a total of 6 teams:
  1. Petro de Launda (2011 Championship)
  2. Académica de Luanda
  3. Juventude de Viana
  4. Benfica de Luanda
  5. 1º Agosto
  6. Kabuscorp do Palanca
There's any news about the disapearence of Hoquei 2000 and ASA club that last years had surprised with excellent results. We hope that this club had not finished. One year befor the A World Cup to be held in Angola (Luanda and probably Namibe city), has an important year to increase it level and promote roller hokey as never before.
Until now were disputed 2 rounds with the following scores:

1st Day

Until now it's confirmed the presence of the home team Angola, Mozambique, Chile, Brazil, Colombia and Germany. The competition will be host in Huambo from 23rd to 27th August or from 15th to 19th August (Angolan federation didn't decide yet because of it elections).

Amazing Atmosphere in Portuguese Roller Hockey

One more season is getting close to finish in most European Championships. After FC Barcelona, Dornbirn RHC, Grimsby, Nofit and HC Dinan Quévert victories in Spanish, Austrian, English, Israeli and French championships, also 1ª Divisão in Portugal it's almost finding it champion. After another amazing and emotional "O Clássico" between the two biggest Portuguese roller hockey clubs, Porto and Benfica, the final result was 5-5. This result is favorable to the home team, Benfica, that can stop Porto's supremacy in Portuguese hockey in last decade. With one more point than Porto, Benfica will try to win Tigres de Almeirim on last journey, and assure it 21st Portuguese title. But the reason of this article has something about Emotion and Atmosphere in roller hockey, as happen in sports like football and basketball. Which amateur sport can have something like the next video??? This was the last Benfica's goal appointed by one of greatest Portuguese players, Sérgio Silva.


The celebration after was unique, and is an image about how special is this sport for a lot of people!! Although our sort can't have the same visibility, managers with the same perspicacity, and of course the same money  than the majority of other sports, has something special, some kind of mystique and passion. It is just because of this that roller hockey can't stop!!!
