“As soon as the infection rate drops there are parts of Spain, such as the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands or Madrid where we could have fans back in the grounds,” La Liga president Javier Tebas said on fans’ return to the stadiums, as quoted by AS.
“The government wants it to be all of Spain at the same time, but we need to set it straight that it won’t be like that, it’s impossible.”
Tebas added some crucial details: “We want to start with 3,000 fans in the stadiums. That way the clubs can give something to the fans. By the end of January, we’d hope to be able to have more fans. We won’t see the grounds 100% full till next season.”
Real Madrid are currently playing at the Alfredo di Stefano stadium which has a total capacity of 6,000 seats. The Santiago Bernabeu stadium is currently in the middle of a renovation.
Indeed, the coronavirus situation in Spain has been gradually improving: on Thursday, 12,289 new cases were registered, compared to the latest peak of 25,595 new cases on October 30.
