Below is the letter from President, FISTF, Luís Filipe Horta, during the revealing of the new Board of Directors.
Ref. 1-2013-PR February 5th, 2013
It gives me great pleasure to accept the task of re-building our wonderful game and sport by
accepting the role of FISTF President.
In the name of all the new FISTF Board of Directors, I would like to thank you all for the
confidence you showed on this team and I would like to invite you to work with us side by side in
order to create a better future for our federation and our sport.
These elections must be faced as a reset and a restart for FISTF, and for that we need the support
of the national associations.
All nations are important. There are no big or small nations for us. All nations shall have a voice
inside FISTF, having or not having a member of the same nation in the Board.
In fact, this shall not be important anymore for anyone because from the first moment we were
elected, we start representing all the nations and we will work at the same way to help any nation.
We are now facing a big challenge and we all are aware of that. We do not promise anything more
than a lot of work and effort made by all the members of the new Board. This is our strategy. This
will be our main objective.
However we know this is not a 6-men job only. We need the help of some more people. It is here
where we need you.
You surely may count with us, but we would like to count on you as well.
Thank you very much.
Luís Filipe Horta
