According to him, yet in this month of August FAF will receive the first tranche of USD 1 million.

The second tranche, worth USD 500,000, will only be allocated in January 2021, through accountability.

As for the amount allocated by the African Football Confederation, Artur Almeida e Silva confirmed that it is USD 300,000, to be made available during the year.

Women's football will be entitled to USD 500,000, while each club in the first division will benefit from USD 16,000, from the second division USD 10,000. The provincial associations will receive each USD 12,000.

 The senior national team will benefit from USD 90,000.

According to the person in charge of FAF, only now the amounts will be available, since the degree of demand on the part of the creditors is quite strict with regard to the transfer of amounts.

These amounts will be distributed to clubs in the first and second division, the women's sector, provincial associations, training schools, professional associations linked to coaches, referees, beach soccer and indoor soccer.
