National Championship ===================== First and Second level Scheduled start: Feb 3 No championship held this season due to financial problems and due to the rain. The Football Federation decided to exclude FC Cuntum from the first division because of indisciplined acts during the past season. Their place will be taken by Estrela Negra of Bissau (the military national team, relegated to the second division two years ago following not showing at a match against FC Mavegro during the civil war in 1998). Cups 2000/01 Taça Nacional da Guiné-Bissau 24th edition First round [Jul 6] Sporting Bissau 0-1 FC Mavegro Benfica Bissau 1-2 Desportivo Mansabá UDIB 0-1 FC Cuntum Portos Bissau 6-2 Desportivo Farim Flamengo Pefine 2-1 Balantas Mansôa NB: winners: ADR Desportivo de Mansabá Regional Cups Taça da Associação do Campeonato da Cidade de Cantchungo Final [Oct 28] FC Catacumba 3-1 FC Djaraff NB: while Catacumba were expecting a trophy, the organisation, having no money to buy one, offered their captain a cow. On seeing this, Djaraff insist on receiving a *small* cow (calf?) as losers' trophy. Moreover, the best player of the final and the topscorer also want their prize in nature, as a small animal (pig or chicken). Unfortunately the organisation have no money to buy any more animals and in the end only the Catacumba players can celebrate their victory running around their stadium with their grass-eating trophy.
