The downhill endangers the Superliga

The controversial issue of descents, days before the start, remains unresolved and is a threat to the Superliga tournament.

Los descensos hacen peligrar a la Superliga

The Superliga Executive Committee was unable to sit, as twelve clubs did not attend. The meeting had to be suspended one week before the scheduled start of the championship, with the theme of descents as the main focus.

The start of the Argentine Football Superliga (SAF) 2019/2020 is scheduled for Friday, July 26. But that program date runs the risk that it will not be met. Since it was still agreed between the clubs the theme of descents.

The clubs that were represented to meet today's meeting were Boca, River, Racing, San Lorenzo, Independiente, Athletic Tucumán, Velez, Hurricane, Workshops Córdoba, Defense and Justice, Godoy Cruz and Union.

Instead, they decided not to attend the leaders of Colón, Banfield, Patronato, Central Córdoba of Santiago del Estero, Arsenal, Argentinos, Central Rosario, Newells, Gymnastics, Students and Lanús. Meanwhile, the representation of Aldosivi was “absent with notice”.

The purpose of the meeting was to adopt the rules of procedure. An essential spring so you can start the tournament.

The clubs that decided not to show up are the ones that demand a change in the system of descents. With the intention of carrying out a mixed system.

Thus, the “rebel” clubs intend to implement two declines with the traditional averaging system. And another two for positions on the annual table. Which would also include the Superleague Cup.

This group of clubs also claims that the points for San Lorenzo and Huracánremain firm. Which is currently suspended.

That's why when Cristian Malaspina (Argentinos Juniors), Guillermo Pellegrino (Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata) and Eduardo Spinosa (Banfield) entered the Superliga offices and warned that they would not give the quorum, the meeting rose until further notice with much anger from the other side.

The next few days then promise to be very moved. Because in this situation the championship could start on the scheduled date, but with the old rules. That is, four declines on average.
