Brazilian football may soon have an audience again. The Ministry of Health approved today (22) a study sent by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) that foresees the return of up to 30% of fans to the country’s stadiums. The return would occur first in Serie A games, of the Brazilian Championship, in October.
According to O Globo, CBF has already received the endorsement of the portfolio by letter from Minister Eduardo Pazuello. The document was addressed to the president of the main entity of Brazilian football, Rogério Caboclo. According to the organization, the agency’s only requirement is that each municipality and state adopt a health policy and a health protocol.
Despite the federal government’s green light, there is still a long way to go. States, municipalities and clubs will have to reach an agreement, which does not seem so simple. As an example we have the case of the president of Corinthians: Andrés Sanchez has already made it clear that he will only accept the presence of the public in the stadiums when all clubs are released. Now, CBF must submit the document to the teams, but still with no date set for a possible meeting.
