After the president of the Supreme Court of Sports Justice allowed the presence of the public in the Rio de Janeiro stadium, the Tricolor gaúcho legal team stated that it will file a guarantee of personal order from the club to ensure that the game is played without fans
Starting between Flamengo e Guild, scheduled for this Wednesday, 15, from 9:30 pm (GMT), at Maracanã, for the return of the quarter finals of the Copa do Brasil, will gain new developments in the courts. After the president of the Supreme Court of Sports Justice (STJD) allowed the presence of the public at the stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Tricolor’s legal team stated that it will enter the STJD with a guarantee of the club’s very personal order to ensure that the clash is held without fans, as well as in the first clash between the teams, which ended 4-0 for Rubro -Black. “The Grêmio will file all the necessary procedural measures to guarantee the validity of the regulation of the Copa do Brasil and the Brazilian Championship, decided by their respective technical councils,” he said Romildo Bolzan Junior, president of the Guild.
Last week, the City Hall of Rio de Janeiro accepted the Flamengo request and authorized the club to host three games with fans present – among them is the game against Grêmio, for the Copa do Brasil. A meeting last Wednesday between 19 of the 20 Serie A clubs decided that the Brazilian Championship will continue without a public in September. The Rio de Janeiro team, supported by an injunction obtained from the STJD, did not send a representative. The clubs plan to sue the STJD itself to overturn the injunction. “We will fight until the end from the procedural point of view to prevail the collective that decided. So I believe in the reversal because it is and the decision of the clubs. The technical board decided to return when all squares are ready. This is also my position because it is isonomic and egalitarian”, said Romildo.
In an interview with Jovem Pan, Grêmio’s legal director, Nestor Hein, stated that Luiz Felipe Scolari’s team was instructed not to take the field., if Maracanã has fans. However, the Grêmio president affirms that this possibility is no longer on the agenda and the club will “exhaust legal instances” to prevent the game from being played with the public. As it was thrashed by 4-0, Tricolor must return the result to take the match to penalties. A victory by five or more goals gives the classification to the Gauchos.
