The ProLiga association, which represents 237 Second B and Third division clubs, has drawn up a ‘Decalogue for the sustainability of the clubs’ of non-professional football to try to mitigate the crisis that the current coronavirus pandemic will cause.The association has collected, in its meetings by electronic means, “the general opinions” of its affiliates, who are expected to go through “economic difficulties” in the 2020-21 season, and has elaborated the decalogue to try to give them a solution. Thus, it will make it available to the Higher Sports Council (CSD), the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and the unions of the Spanish Soccer Players (AFE) and ON Soccer players, with whom it will try to “work together in search of the corresponding solutions “.“ProLiga defends the collective rights and interests of its members, which is why it cannot pronounce in favor or against a model to end competitions at the present time, since what benefits a club hurts others. However, ProLiga is legitimized to make proposals that reflect the real concern in the categories we represent, “he said in a statement.Among those ten proposals are the subsidy of the arbitrations, in Second B (already in force), also for the Third Division, Youth Division of Honor and National League or the creation of the status ‘semi-professional athlete’ with a special social security contribution scheme.last_img read more
