Spain says goodbye to 2020 with football, what is it like to play on New Year’s Eve?


#For the first time #LaLiga you will see activity in #New #Years #Eve due to the pandemic of COVID-19 and that’s how they planned to play the #Matchday 16 in the last week of 2020, with two meetings that will not only close this date, but will also serve to dismiss the year, with the duels between #Athletic #Bilbao against #Real society and #Osasuna against #Alavés. #All early so that the footballers can celebrate the #New #Year at home with their families.

There is a common denominator among the four teams playing on #December 31st, that they do not have to make a long journey to the game. #Michel #González, a journalist for the newspaper #El #Vasco, shared the logistics that #La #Real put together, which had changes in it for this duel.

#Picture white-blue traveled this #Wednesday after training to #Bilbao by road to sleep in the city where the #Basque derby is being played. There they slept and this early #Thursday they moved to #San #Mamés #Stadium for the match, something that is not usually common, since being a hundred kilometers away, they usually travel and return by bus the same day of the match.

“La #Real takes an hour to #Bilbao by bus. #What he has done is go to sleep there. #It is not usual, when they play it is to go on the same day of match and return, but this time they have taken a hotel. They left this #Wednesday after training and they stayed to sleep because the game is at 2 in the afternoon; they have decided that more for a matter of controlling the food issue, ”shared #González.

#That is the same case of #Alaves, who will play against #Osasuna visitor and will have to move from #Vitoria a #Pamplona, which are also around a hundred kilometers and usually travel on the same match day. #Thus the #League #Spanish scheduled these two close encounters on #December 31st, so that the players would not have problems returning home to their families.

#In the case of basque derby, the one who could have complications is the designated referee, since the #Referees #Committee send to #Jose #Maria #Sanchez #Martinez, who resides in #Murcia, 800 kilometers from #Bilbao and would have to move by plane, hoping the air bustle that usually exists in the #December’s holidays.

#Athletic-Real #Sociedad will be played this #Thursday at 7:00 am and the #Osasuna-Alaves at 9:15 am, the last match of 2020 in #Spain, dates when it is not usual to have football in the #Iberian country.

PREMIER LEAGUE WILL BE PLAYED IN NEW YEAR

#And if in #Spain they say goodbye to the year with football, in #England they receive it in the same way, since this #Friday #January 1 there is activity, although in the case of the #Premier #League it is more common for them to have games on these dates. #So that day they will play #Everton against #West #Ham at 11:30 am and #Manchester #United before #Aston #Villa at 2:00 p.m., both in downtown time #Mexico.

#While in #Spain they put them in the afternoon of #December 31, in the #United #Kingdom they will be at night, talking about the local time of each country. The #Hammers they will have to travel about 300 kilometers from #Stratford, #Londres, until #Liverpool, while The #Villans they will travel only 136 kilometers from #Aston to #Manchester, but used to doing it by land by bus.
