Oliveras will resign if Catalonia is not admitted

Speaking on Catalunya Radio, the president of the FIRS has declared that he will present his resignation if Catalonia is not admitted as a full member of the FIRS.
Oliveras considers that a negative vote against the recognition of Catalonia would imply a lack of confidence and trust in the FIRS Central Committee who provisionally admitted Catalonia last March.
In addition, Oliveras believes that the inclusion of Catalonia as full member would be an important step for the FIRS since "roller hockey is dying internationally, whereas in Catalonia it is a growing sport with over 400 hockey games played every weekend for only 130 played anywhere else in the world".

Oliveras is definitely making a move forward here. It is nice to see someone who is willing to take risks for his own principles. Thank you!
