The Argentine Football Association has announced the cancellation of the local league, which was suspended in mid-March due to an outbreak of Coruna Virus, its president Claudio Tapia said Monday.
“We will drop the curtain on the league and choose the teams that will take part in continental competitions next season,” Tapia said in an interview with TNT.
The federation also announced that they would not adopt the landing principle this season and the next.
Gymnasium I Esgrima de la Plata, whose training is supervised by Argentine superstar Diego Maradona and who is 19th out of 24 teams, will remain first class.
Tapia justified the measures aimed at definitively stopping the league for the need to lighten the economic burdens under which the clubs are considered and which are non-profit institutions in Argentina.
The quarantine measures in Argentina, decided by the local government on March 20, continue at least on May 10.
