The Premier values ​​open football to avoid crowded home gatherings

first_imgThe Premier could return in June, if the coronavirus epidemic allows it, and the authorities are already thinking about the possible scenarios that may occur at that time when, everything indicates, that the competition could resume without a public in the stadiums. That will provoke massive audiences through television and, in that sense, Oliver Dowden, Secretary of Culture, has conveyed to the Premier his concern about the distancing measures that will continue in progress for a long time. Sky Sports and BT Sport are the payment platforms issued by the English league. If there is no public in the stadiums, the monitoring on television will increase even more and Dowden wants to avoid risky situations. Plan massive gatherings of friends at home, since not everyone has access to these payment channels, which would be a breeding ground for new infections. In this sense, Dowden has explained that he has presented the Premier with a proposal. It is none other than offering some or all of the matches in the open competition to avoid these crowds. It is not easy. “I have raised this challenge to the Premier in the conversations we have had, if the competition returns behind closed doors and the general public cannot access it, we have several creative options on the table, and that is one of them to consider, and this has been recognized by the Premier “, wields Dowden.But the main obstacle would be to reach some kind of agreement with Sky Sports and BT Sport, the pay channels that the league offers and that pay a huge amount of money to the clubs every season. The idea has also been extended to Scotland, where it has also been warned that closed-door matches create the danger of gathering supporters off the field, which would be fertile ground for the spread of the coronavirus.last_img read more
