Belenenses president Patrick Morais de Carvalho said on Thursday that Belenenses SAD, a football club that operates in the 1st soccer league, is preparing to change its name to Comporta Football Club, a name already registered with the National Institute of Industrial Property ( INPI).
“[A SAD] He asked to change the company’s name to ‘B-SAD, Sociedade Esportiva de Futebol, SAD’, which was authorized by the RNPC [Registo Nacional de Pessoas Coletivas]. He also asked for a second authorization for ‘Comporta, Sociedade sportiva de Futebol, SAD’, which is under analysis, and his lawyer registered the Comporta Football Club brand at INPI “, he explained.
In a lively debate between the three candidates for the suffrage of Belenenses, held on Thursday, on the TV channel Sport TV +, Patrick Morais de Carvalho had already shown the documents published on Friday on the social network Facebook, accusing SAD of playing ” one last card “in Saturday’s elections through list C candidate, Luís Figueiredo.
“[A SAD] Will do it soon [mudar de nome]. And he just hasn’t done it yet because he plays in tomorrow’s elections [sábado] one last card, through a candidate [Luís Figueiredo] that promises to try to buy back the SAD, knowing that neither will be received. A candidate that will allow BSAD to definitively usurp the name of Belenenses and return to Restelo “, he warned.
Luís Figueiredo’s list reacted to the “insulting and clumsy accusation” during the televised debate, with the opponent to the current president guaranteeing: “I had no conversations with SAD, I had no contacts with Rui Pedro Soares”.
Belenenses’ members decide on Saturday the future of the club, in elections with three candidates with different views, which contrast in the continuity of the path of return to the professional echelons of football or in the buyback of SAD.
The lawyer and current president Patrick Morais de Carvalho leads list A, under the motto ‘Belenenses with a Future’, keeping Pedro Pestana Bastos and João Morão as presidents of the General Meeting Board (MAG) and the Fiscal and Disciplinary Council (CFD) , respectively.
In list B, the economist Carlos Canhoto Fernandes, who, under the motto ‘Erguer os Belenenses’, has Fernando Veiga Gomes as president of MAG and Jorge Gomes Pedro to lead the CFD.
Manager Luís Figueiredo is running for club direction, João Tarrana to MAG and Luís Filipe Pinto to CFD, for list C, with the motto ‘Respect History’.
The suffrage takes place between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm on Saturday, at the Dr. Ramos Lopes Sports Center, outdoors, next to the Acácio Rosa pavilion, due to the current situation of the covid-19 pandemic, in which the club members da Cruz de Cristo will be able to choose who they want to see running the club in the 2020-2023 period.
