Some issues changed after the suspension due to the pandemic. For example, the work of the referees. Before, they had to control how many troops were in the stadium and made a form that was signed by the person in charge of the security operation.
“Those who are in charge of controlling these situations are the League’s observers, the referees only have to direct,” explained Rubén Tapia, Sadra’s treasurer at the national level. In addition, the leader explained that they participate in the meetings of the League, but only advise the number of troops that should attend the matches.
The truth is that on the first and second dates, several games were played without police officers. In San Juan, for example, Ezequiel Cabello explained that they worked without troops but with people who collaborated for the party to develop normally. “We have trusted people and we also ask Darío Montero to collaborate with us with the municipal lookouts. They controlled that people did not enter the stadium by jumping over the wall, “he explained.
Something similar happened in Amalia: club employees, identified with a vest, guarded the referees before, during and after the game. “I do not know why there are no police officers, I know that the security forces did not reach an agreement, but today the clubs are going through a difficult economic situation and they should understand it,” said Eduardo Ávila, president of the club.
Marcelo Escobar, president of Almirante Brown, decided to hire private security for the game that his team played against San Lorenzo de Delfín Gallo. “In addition to private security, I asked that there be municipal police, I don’t know what problem there will be, I think it could become a political issue,” said the president of “Marino.” Further south of the province the situation is similar. “I put people from the urban guard, I hope this situation will be solved soon,” said Jesús Campos, president of Deportivo Marapa.
