Spanish Stadiums Allowed To Reopen With Fans Until The End of The Season.
THE Spanish Government has decided to lift the restrictions and allow the public to return to stadiums in official competitions until the end of the season, although there are conditions attached.
Fans will only be able to go to the competitions in municipalities that are in phase 1 of the pandemic, that is, with a cumulative incidence of fewer than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. This limits the authorisation to the Valencian Community and the Balearic Islands.
The decision comes after the meeting held by the Minister of Culture, José Manuel Uribes, and the presidents of LaLiga and ACB, Javier Tebas and Antonio Martín.
There are other conditions that the minister has attached, such as that the events must be held with 30 per cent of the capacity and a maximum of 5,000 people. In addition, the public will not be able to eat, drink, or smoke in the facilities, they must wear an FPP2 mask, access in a staggered manner, and maintain a distance of one and a half metres.
It will be already from this weekend and will affect the two remaining days, plus the ‘playoff’ in the Second Football Division and the Endesa League matches for the ‘playoff’ at the end of the season.
The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, has indicated that “the reality is changing. If other regions enter phase 1 they could also be opened to the public.”

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
