The president of Grêmio, Romildo Bolzan Jr., spoke about the decision of the Superior Court of Sports Justice (STJD) not to judge the request for suspension of the injunction that allows Flamengo to play with fans at Maracanã.
On Friday, 19 Serie A clubs filed a request to suspend the injunction or bring forward the judgment of the lawsuit filed by Flamengo, scheduled for the 23rd.
But the president of the STJD, Otavio Noronha, said the process will follow its normal rite. Thus, Flamengo may have cheered on Wednesday’s game against Grêmio, for the Copa do Brasil.
– With the judgment in advance and publicized by the president, it would be better to annul the collective instances of the clubs within the technical councils, as they are worth nothing else. All very strange – said Romildo.

Flamengo got authorization from the STJD to play with the public, even against the wishes of the CBF and most clubs that compete in national competitions. With the release of the city hall of Rio to conduct three games as test events, the club started selling tickets and will maintain its position.
Grêmio had threatened not to take the field in the presence of fans. Tricolor claims lack of equality, since there was no public in the first game, in Porto Alegre, and even sent a letter with questions to the CBF. But the club from Rio Grande do Sul has reconsidered its position and says it will play to avoid any kind of sanction.
