The position of the Community of Madrid: you can play
The Community of Madrid denies, as reported by Radio MARCA, that the works prevent the Ray-Granada from being disputed in Vallecas.
“The reform works that the Community of Madrid has been carrying out since last December in the Vallecas stadium do not prevent, in any case, the celebration of official football matches and public access during the first home game of the League 2021 championship / 22, scheduled for next day 29. Two of the three stands of the stadium are currently in conditions of safety, accessibility and health to be able to welcome the attending public for that date.
The meeting held today between representatives of the Community of Madrid, the club and the League has not had as its objective the possibility of changing the venue of the committed matches in the stadium.
Any possible change of venue for the matches at the start of the championship would therefore be a unilateral decision, alien to the Community of Madrid and not attributable to the work carried out by the regional government in the venue with a budget amounting to 1.7 million euros. “, they explain.
