LaLiga hopes to restart on May 2 and 3 behind closed doors


first_imgOnce UEFA has already decided from this noon on the future of all its competitions and, by extension, also that of the national ones, LaLiga also holds important telematic meetings to address this coronavirus crisis and the impact on Spanish football. If yesterday Thebes met with his trusted team and then chaired the monthly Delegate Commission, today it has reconvened its Management Committee from 12:00 noon to finish shaping a strategy in which time has been working but is at the expense of what happens internationally this Tuesday officially.If the Federation assured last week that it works in four possible scenarios, as today it is recording its intervention in the UEFA meeting with 55 other federations and the FIFpro players union, LaLiga works mainly on a hypothesis: that the Spanish championship can be restarted in the first week of May (May 2 and 3, although it would be attempted earlier) and end it in June, playing days on weekends and weekdays to accommodate even the Second Playoffs. Of course, as much as it hurts the leaders, almost certainly this outcome would be behind closed doors. The fact that the Euro Cup has already been postponed to June 2021 makes this LaLiga intention much more viable. The main slogan of LaLiga is to save the more than one hundred television contracts that professional clubs around the world have. Thebes understands that it is a chore for their associates to be unable to make the corresponding ticket offices that still remain, but the first thing is the health of the fans and players. The key is not to lose that 25% of the audiovisual income that is still in the eaves, since many television and sponsors are very concerned with the fact that the championship cannot be finished. Above all, LaLiga sources assure, with some alternatives that have been launched with some recklessness. That would lead to a review of television contracts with the significant inconvenience that it would pose for LaLiga. Thebes is confident that this afternoon what is already an open secret, the suspension of the Euro Cup, and even the reduction of the format of the Champions League will be made official. That would facilitate some plans that he wants to share with all the clubs, very pending and concerned, throughout this Tuesday. The fact that UEFA asks for a solidarity fund to the leagues for postponing their competitions, as AS has revealed this Tuesday, is not funny.last_img read more
