Football in Guinea-Bissau
Football in Guinea-Bissau continues to be hampered by limited funding and severe shortcomings in terms of infrastructure and equipment. They have enjoyed some success at regional level, however, lifting the «Tournoi des cinq» by evading the challenges of Angola, Mozambique, São Tomé and the Cape Verde Islands, reaching the Final of the «Coupe Amilcar Cabral» in 1983 and twice winning a tournament that brings together a number of Portuguese-speaking teams. Many players from Guinea-Bissau play for clubs in Portugal. These players have dual nationality and therefore have a special status in that country's league championship (they are classed as «assimilated players»).
Third Goal project
The third project of the Guinea-Bissaun Football Association involved the renovation and extension of the regional football stadium of Canchungo (Cacheu), with the aim of decentralising the country's football and improving training conditions for coaches, referees and players. The Goal Bureau approved this project on 2 June 2009.
