The AZEMAD Elite Cup will have in the bill, the 8 best Portuguese Roller Hockey teams: FC Porto, Sporting CP, UD Oliveirense, SL Benfica, OC Barcelos, HC Braga, Paço de Arcos and Juventude de Viana.
Besides these top teams and today´s hottest hockey players, AZEMAD will bring news to the competition: a removable floor made for the event, with new features and a lighter coloured wood, that aim to bring greater contrast with the ball, as well as making it more spectacular for those who watch, both in the pavilion and through televised broadcasts. The Official Elite Cup Ball, also developed by AZEMAD was used and considered a success in the World Roller Games, offers groundbreaking features for playing, as well as an innovation regarding stamping, which promises a longer durability of its design, to be able to withstand the wear and intensity of the tournament matches.
