Football to stop in 20th minute to pay homage to coronavirus victims

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 355

La Liga have announced that once the championship resumes, all matches will briefly stop in the 20th minute, in tribute to those that have passed away because of the coronavirus pandemic.

It will be one of the biggest novelties of post-break football in Spain. The details are being finalised so that the La Liga games will stop briefly in the 20th minute, in tribute to the victims of COVID-19.

Spain decreed 10 days of official mourning in homage to the coronavirus victims, but the world of football will not be left behind. La Liga will pay their own tribute.

And it seems that it will consist of a brief stoppage of play in the 20th minute of every match. A minute's silence, with the empty stands, lacks the usual impact of such action. It was necessary to innovate.

La Liga will also show a video on the scoreboards that athletes and other personalities will appear in.
