The Council of Justice considers that it does not have the competence to evaluate the appeal presented by Cova da Piedade, regarding the early end of the II League, due to the covid-19 pandemic.
The federative body accepted the process at first instance, which immediately had suspensive effects in relation to the decision of the leadership of the League, which ended the second step, with ten rounds to dispute, determining the rise of Nacional and Farense, and the relegations of Cova da Piedade and Casa Pia.
Now that the case has been analyzed, the Justice Council declares itself incompetent to analyze the case.
Right when he filed the appeal, Cova da Piedade admitted this answer, and for that reason he considered referring the case to the Sports Arbitral Tribunal.
This must therefore be the next step for the emblem of the municipality of Almada.
