For Kalil and the health authorities of Belo Horizonte, there was disrespect to the COVID-19 prevention protocols in the two test events: Atltico x River Plate, for the quarter finals of the Copa Libertadores (17,030 fans), and Cruzeiro x Confiana, for the 20th round of Series B (4,730 fans).
Cruzeiro’s board of directors understood the position of PBH, but does not want to give up support from the stands. The idea is to get a 30% release of the capacity of the Arena do Jacar, which has more than 18 thousand seats, but the Fire Department report releases 10,066.
Cruzeiro will still need authorization from the Superior Court of Sports Justice (STJD) to receive the public in away games in Belo Horizonte, in addition to the approval of the video referee (VAR) for the stadium in Sete Lagoas by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).
As soon as all the details are sorted out, the club will play with a audience of 3 to 4 thousand fans. Those unable to attend Arena do Jacar will be able to watch Cruzeiro x Ponte Preta exclusively through Premiere.
The CBF has not yet broken up the matches from the 24th round of Serie B. Cruzeiro will play at home against Operrio on three possible dates: Tuesday, 14th, Friday, 17th, or Saturday, September 18th.
