Real Madrid issued a public statement on Tuesday, 14 July urging fans to avoid congregating in the Spanish capital if the club wins the 2019/20 LaLiga title in order to limit the risk of spreading the coronavirus.
“Real Madrid C.F. calls on its club members and supporters not to gather in Cibeles in the event that the team secures the LaLiga title,” the club said in a statement on Tuesday.
“In the event that Real Madrid are crowned champions, our players will not visit the usual points of celebration, in particular, the Plaza de Cibeles, and we therefore also ask our club members and supporters that, in the event that we secure the title, they did not gather in these places.
“In this regard, all of us must make a contribution, as has been the case to date, and show the utmost responsibility to avoid the risk of contagion.
“Real Madrid feels the duty to issue this important call in a show of utmost responsibility and with the firm belief that any possible triumph involving our team must not give rise to a massive backward step in the battle we are all waging against this pandemic.”
