Cape Verde will host the headquarters of the African Athletics Development Center for African Portuguese Speaking Countries (PALOP), an infrastructure that is co-financed by the African Athletics Confederation (CAA).
According to information provided to the press by the Directorate-General for Sports, the African Athletics Confederation gave a positive opinion to the proposal of the Cape Verdean Athletics Federation (FCA) for the implementation of an Athletics Development Center.
The source assures that for the presentation of the project, the FCA had the support of the Ministry of Sport.
Soon, the CAA will send a mission to Cape Verde “to discuss the terms and conditions” for the opening of the said center.
For FCA, it is “an important tool for the development of athletics in the PALOP and, above all, in Cape Verde”.
According to Inforpress, the Athletics Development Center for PALOP should be installed at the National Stadium, in Achada de São Filipe, on the outskirts of Praia.
