Portuguese water polo title holders Portinado do not have a pool in which to contest this season’s home legs of the final play-off encounters with Salgueiros.

Having been able to use Portimão’s municipal baths during the regular season, swimming federation requirements for the finals precludes further play there.

With the only suitable Algarve pools in Faro and Loule under repair, the only option for the Portimao champions barring a successful appeal is to play their two home games away.
