Municipality invests in sport again

Signing of protocols between the municipality and 46 sports associations in the municipality

Football, handball, karate, horse riding, figure skating, billiards, mountain biking, sailing, chess, basketball, tennis, volleyball, athletics, cycling and triathlon are some of the sports that the Municipality of Matosinhos supports annually in order to train young athletes.

The Mayor, Luísa Salgueiro, signed, late yesterday afternoon, May 5, the protocols with associative leaders of 46 sports associations in the municipality representing, this time, a support of about 498 thousand euros related to the federated athletes of Matosinhos clubs belonging to the training levels.

This attribution resulted, as usual, from a candidature process in the scope of the Specific Norms of Support to Sports Associations which encompasses, essentially, three vectors of financial support: number of federated athletes belonging to the training levels, sports events and investments.

The subsidy awarding ceremony was also attended by the vice-president of the municipality, Carlos Mouta, the councillor for Sports of the Matosinhos City Hall, Vasco Pinho, and the director of Matosinhos Sport, Henrique Calisto.
