Di Stéfano must adapt the VAR, lighting and advertising

first_imgThe decision of Madrid to play the remainder of the season, when the institutions and Health give the green light to the return of the competitions, at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium in Valdebebas is taking more and more body. The possibility of accelerating the works this summer without interruptions caused by the game days, as it happened until it stopped all on March 13 (the day that Madrid-Eibar was going to be played at the Bernabéu), has forced the club’s desire to take advantage of Valdebebas facilities and the stadium in which Castilla plays to play the six remaining league games at home (Eibar, Valencia, Mallorca, Getafe, Alavés and Villarreal), as well as the option to play the quarterfinal of Champions if those of Zidane manage to overcome against City in the pending game in Manchester. There will be no scheduling problems with Castilla, a regular tenant of Di Stéfano, when the Spanish Federation decided to permanently suspend the competition in Second B.Both LaLiga, for the remainder of the competition, and UEFA, for the remainder of the Champions, have informed the club that when playing behind closed doors due to the coronavirus they will not fault. to that change of scenery proposed by Madrid. In addition, the measurements of the playing field are exactly the same as those of the La Castellana Coliseum. Yes, in the entity they prefer to be cautious while waiting for the decisions made by all levels about the return to training and competition, for which there are still no fixed dates. In addition, it is necessary to undertake an investment in Di Stefano so that Madrid can play there with all the guarantees. To begin with and as AS reported yesterday, the first step is to seamlessly move VAR technology (cameras and monitors installed in the Bernabéu) and the club assures that it will be done safely and without any difficulty. Further, Di Stéfano’s night lighting is valid for broadcasting Castilla’s matches in Segunda B, but it is not of sufficient quality to offer League and Champions matches. The club would have to install new artificial lighting turrets, more powerful and guaranteeing perfect visibility and approved by the League and UEFA. By last, it would be necessary to adapt the advertising of the ‘ad time’ system, installed in the bands and funds of the Bernabéu. The sponsors generate a good source of income for the club and the change of scenery would force the advertising infrastructure to be moved so that those income are not in danger.Madrid believes that all this can be fixed in the coming weeks without problems, since until June minimum the competitions will not return. There is plenty of time to adapt to this new reality, which will take advantage of the Bernabéu and its modernization works, which could be several months ahead of the deadlines set in the initial project (autumn 2022).last_img read more

The first 10 minutes of the game was a very competitive affair with both teams matching each other toe to toe and blow for blow. It was at this point that the superiority of Naomh Colmcille began to shine through with Daniel Clarke and Michael Lynch the 2 main influencers. The missing of a penalty was a big let off for Naomh Colmcille despite the fact that it was a soft penalty to begin with but the team regrouped and kept on the pressure to protect their lead with goals from Niall Monaghan and Daniel Clarke. The score at half time was Naomh Colmcille 2-09 Letterkenny Gaels 0-04 but was not a total reflection on the first half as both teams hit a few wides.The second half started and Naomh Colmcille came out all guns blazing with no intention of taking any prisoners. Naomh Colmcille remained dominant in both halves of the field with good defence and attacking from all involved with Michael Lynch and Oisin Hasset been 2 key players in the second half. There were some well-taken scores as a whole including fine shooting and execution from Gavin Mc Daid and Oisin Hasset as well as including the third goal of the night and a few well-taken dead ball opportunities by Captain Daniel Clarke. There was a lot of good players playing at the top of their game which made the decision for man of the match that much more difficult but at the end of the day two players shone through equally and it had to go to them – Oisin Hasset and Michael Lynch, well done Lads!!!Downings Bay HotelDivision Two Section TwoLetterkenny Gaels 10.13Downings 5.06There were goals galore at Páirc na Gael as both teams contained forwards with a keen eye for majors. The first half was a close affair with the Gaels pulling clear near half time to leave the score 3.09 to 3.04. The home side took control in the second half with great scores from Kyle Sylvia, Paddy Doherty and Cormac Cannon. The visitors had some excellent performances from Dale McFadden, Lorcan Connors and hat-trick debutant Darren Lynch.GAA: DONEGAL NORTHERN BOARD NOTES was last modified: April 2nd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal Northern Board noteslast_img read more
