La Liga Creating Tribute for COVID-19 Victims

Civilians worldwide are creating false mindsets that the novel coronavirus is over, believing that it won’t have a second wave in North America or the European Union. This wouldn’t be consistent with multiple countries that saw their cases rise a second time, including South Korea and Japan. Those believing the 2nd wave won’t return begun creating tributes for civilians lost to this virus. Victims in Spain are being honoured by La Liga, with a minute of silence being supported with every match going forward for the 2020 season.

This silence is minimal in comparison to the lives lost, with some Spanish Civilians remarking their disrespect towards the pandemic. Most athletes & coaching staff in La Liga are millionaires, meaning their finances wouldn’t dwindle to concerning levels before the epidemic concluded. This will be similar when the 2nd wave arrives, showing that the wealthy are permitted from avoiding multiple scenarios that’d see someone contract the novel coronavirus.

The announcement that La Liga would implement a minute of silence with every remaining match for 2020 was made through the Royal Spanish Football Federation. It was announced on May 7th, indicating in their revelation that amateur-based teams will also maintain this reflection period. It should be emphasised that Spain experienced an influx of COVID-19 cases, which followed after their neighbouring nation of Italy became an epidemic zone.

La Liga Punters haven’t competed for three months, with footballers announcing their eagerness to return. The 1st match is coming on May 11th between Sevilla and Real Betis. Two other football games are slated for the upcoming weekend, with Real Madrid returning on Sunday. Barcelona FC will see their first two hours of playtime on Saturday against Real Mallorca. All four teams have their supporters voicing their excitement to resumed play.

The Delegations

It should be mentioned that to accomplish this minute of silence; La Liga Execs had to engage in delegations with the Royal Spanish Football Federation. Multiple Spaniards mentioned their disappointment towards the RSFF for not immediately approving this request. However, both parties reached an agreement that doesn’t disrupt operations for the RSFF.
