Each club is making the decisions it deems necessary according to its circumstances to face the serious consequences that follow. In this sense, LaLiga will support, advise and help coordinate those ERTE requests due to force majeure that the clubs consider appropriate to present to the labor authority due to the considerable decrease in their activity (without parties, without visits to stores, etc.) ”.last_img read more
