Guinea Bissau 2001

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).

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.
