The coronavirus arrived in Argentina with everything: after an intense week in which the first cases began to be confirmed in the country, the National Government began to take measures to try to tackle the contagion. One of them was to suspend public attendance at sporting events, so the first date of the Super League Cup was played with empty stands. That is why at the dam conference last Sunday, Alberto Fernandez assured that they are working together with the television stations to try to make football free again.
“I would love for the games to be broadcast on open TV so that the Argentines who have to stay at home can have a fun,” said the president after announcing the latest package of measures – including the 15-day suspension of the lessons-. Whoever accepted the call was Turner Argentina, a company that owns 50% of the Superliga television rights.
Through a statement titled “Our will is to help,” the company said it has “the intention to collaborate during the emergency caused by COVID-19.” “We will jointly discuss with TNT Sports distributors the appropriate way to enable more people to access our content momentarily,” he said. Everything, of course, will be subject to the decision of the footballers and Guild members to continue with the development of the contest and not suspend it, as Sergio Marchi anticipated that it could happen.
