Revolution in Portuguese football (I)



Revolution in Portuguese football (I)

It is more or less generally accepted, aside from our clubbing a little, that football in Portugal is sick and urgently needs shock therapy.

The diagnosis is known, from the opacity of the business that everyone but the clubs, which continue to have exorbitant obligations (debts), to non-competitiveness in our championship, which does not allow us to keep up with the development of the major European leagues, not forgetting the continued violence, ending in inability managers to implement professional management that will catapult football to a higher level.

Given that the current protagonists are interested in keeping things as they are, there is only one possibility, which is inevitably associated with the government’s initiative to create a program that legislates much-needed and urgent reforms.

So our contribution:

1: Time limits in clubs and in the League. The perpetuation of presidents has a perverse effect on the development of football, because from a certain point on, personal interests take precedence over the interests of institutions, and in order to hold on, they are capable of anything, deceiving and blatantly lying to those who elect them. , using in most cases resources that clubs do not have and that could jeopardize their sustainability.

It should be noted that in the Federation and football associations the mandates are already limited by the introduction of the government.

2: Changing the management model of the League of Portugal. They all came to the conclusion that this model is untenable, as it is a unique case in Europe where there is an organization that should provide management and regulation of professional football, but which is practically limited to the organization of matches, with aggravated circumstances. The factor of having a very heavy structure, whose president, who receives a monthly salary of about 20,000 euros (!), seems to be subordinated to the interests of some clubs. However, the introduction by the government of a new management model for the League is crucial, with independent governing bodies having autonomy and the ability to implement the necessary measures for the development of football.

3: Fair distribution of television rights

As we all know, the government has already introduced the centralization of television rights. However, for this to happen, free will must not be allowed in its distribution, since the smallness of the mentality of most managers does not allow them to foresee that the stronger the teams, the greater the competitiveness and the stronger football in general. Therefore, government intervention in a more equitable distribution of funds and the availability of additional and proportionate contributions to further support lower division clubs is essential.

In the next article we will return to the topic and to other measures.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
