The Valencian Community Soccer Federation will ask the Valencian Government to rethink the possibility of allowing the presence of the public in the competitions organized by the FFCV, since "In no case is there a higher risk than in other activities in which the public is allowed".
The measure of the Ministry of Health to prohibit public access to sports venues is a comparative offense with other sectors in which access is allowed: hospitality (a third of the capacity indoors and 50% on terraces); congresses, conferences and events in closed premises (50%); theaters and cinemas (50%); and open-air markets and recreational centers (50%).
A football field and its corresponding stands is a very large outdoor area (about 10.000 square meters) "in which a certain capacity can be controlled complying with all health protocols", they assure from the federation.
The crowds of people on the fences of the enclosures could be avoided by letting in a certain number of people who would be registered, as most clubs and municipalities had been doing before the publication of the decree.
In addition, the measure is a clear detriment to the economy of humble clubs, which do depend on the attendance of a minimum of public for their subsistence, unlike professional clubs.
