The Argentine Football Association has announced the cancellation of the domestic league, which was suspended in mid-March due to an outbreak of Corona Virus, its president Claudio Tapia announced Monday.
“We will drop the curtain on the league and choose the teams that will participate in continental competitions next season,” Tapia said in an interview with TNT.
The federation also announced that the landing principle will not be adopted this season and the next season.
The gymnasium I Esgrima de la Plata, whose training is overseen by Argentine superstar Diego Maradona, and which is nineteenth out of 24 teams, will remain first.
Tapia justified the measures to stop the league permanently, because of the necessity of easing the economic burdens under which clubs are considered non-profit institutions in Argentina.
The quarantine measures in Argentina, decided by the local government on March 20, will last until at least May 10.
