New FIRS website

The FIRS has finally set up a new website much better and comprehensive than it was before, and that we celebrate.
However, the retaliation against the Catalan Federation from the new President Sabatino Aracu, didn't stop at the shameful Congress in Fresno. The information about the Catalan federation, that appeared in the FIRS website prior to the update, has been taken off and the details no longer appear in the website.

New FIRS website
Interesting to see that other federations of countries without a state such as Scotland or Macau have not been removed and still appear in the website.
