The Mayor of Vila Nova de Famalicão, Mário Passos, signed yesterday two dozen protocols for the attribution of a set of financial support, in the amount of 245 thousand euros, for the development of activities and sports training of twenty local clubs and associations.
This Monday, March 13, the mayor of Famalicense received in Paços do Concelho the following sports associations: Famalicense Atlético Clube, Grupo Desportivo de Joane, Ribeirão 1968 Futebol Clube, Associação Desportiva Ninense, Associação Cultural de Vermoim, Operário Futebol Clube, Desportivo São Cosme, Grupo Desportivo de Cavalões, União Desportiva de Calendário, Bairro Futebol Clube, Clube Desportivo de Lousado, FAMABASKET - Clube de Basquetebol de Famalicão, Futebol Clube Brufense, Associação Desportiva e Cultural de São Mateus, Sporting Clube Cabeçudense, Associação Juventude de Joane, Associação Académica Didáxis, Associação Desportiva Colégio das Caldinhas, Associação de Boccia Luís Silva and Associação de Pesca Desportiva Tílias.
The attribution of these supports, to sports as diverse as football, basketball, futsal, handball, boccia, fishing and chess, was approved in the last meeting of the municipal executive, held last Thursday, March 9.
"Training is very important for sporting success, but sport also has the ability to contribute to the personal success of our children and young people. That is why the City Hall keeps this bet, besides so many other supports that it regularly gives to clubs and associations of the municipality", said yesterday Mário Passos, who was accompanied by the Councillor for Sports, Pedro Oliveira.
Remember that, besides these supports, the City Hall of Famalicão has financially supported the federative insurances of athletes in training levels (up to 18 years old, male and female) and in the senior female level, the obligatory medical exams to all young athletes. The municipality led by Mário Passos has also invested in improving the conditions of the municipality's sports facilities, namely by installing LED lights, replacing/maintaining lawns, among others.
