LaLiga-Government controversy for the return of the public to the stadiums


LaLiga clubs are very angry after learning of the new position of the Government of not allowing the public to enter the First and Second Division stadiums, that is, in the fields of LaLiga. A few days ago, statements from Moncloa allowed the clubs to be hopeful about the future and they were already working on a protocol to effect the return of between 10 and 25 percent of the public. But now Health has announced that the fans will not return on day 35 of LaLiga, at the end of the state of alarm, nor until the end of the course.

The clubs consider that it is not acceptable that health is different for the Government than for the Autonomous Communities and even in some where they are governed by the same party. They brand it as a clear question of incoherence of the central government. More when there are already about 14 million Spaniards vaccinated in the first dose and where about 400,000 vaccines are being applied a day. LaLiga and its clubs brand this decision as clear discrimination. It must be borne in mind that next May 9 is the scheduled date for the state of alarm to be lifted throughout the national territory.

The employers do not understand the arbitrariness of the Ministry of Health, and they do not leave their astonishment to learn that in the Interterritorial Committee of Health advisers held on the day, they do not agree anything about the public. From LaLiga, this is understood as a clear demonstration that the Autonomous Communities are acting correctly allowing a public capacity in non-professional competitions: Second Division B or Third, among others.

In parallel, the Professional League announced on Thursday night that an increase in the presence of the media in the Spanish league stadiums will be allowed as of next weekend, from matchday 35 of LaLiga Santander and the matchday 38 of LaLiga SmartBank. In the case of Primera, it coincides with the two key games that can influence the result of the League: Barcelona-Atl├ętico de Madrid at the Camp Nou and Real Madrid-Sevilla in Valdebebas.

From now on, the access of the media, previously accredited, will not be limited as up to now established the Protocol unified training and competition for the 20/21 season, but will allow entry to complete the capacity resulting from respecting health regulations.

Negative PCR or antigen test before entering the stage

The rest of the preventive measures are maintained, such as control at the entrance to the stadium, the mandatory use of a mask, the use of hydroalcoholic gel and, of course, the maintenance of interpersonal distances in the workplaces set up in the stadiums.

What’s more, instead of the Responsible Declaration required in the Protocol so far, it will be necessary to submit a negative PCR result performed 72 hours before the match or, failing that, perform an antigen test before entering the stadiums, test that the clubs themselves will carry out.
