Therefore, GC for mind games language, of all things,

the 20 Clubs voted. And they agreed, at least 80 percent of them. Choice of spirit were: games, or Cancel. The result is known: games of the two highest classes in the Swiss soccer will not take place due to the Coronavirus until Further notice. After the Cancellations of last weekend, the subject of the next three rounds, and then countries break from the game. Open it from the 3 is. April continues.

most of The Clubs are happy with the solution. Mind games mean a loss. Some Clubs could face in the case of multiple matches without an audience even of the Ruin. Philipp Studhalter, President of FC Luzern, told this newspaper, the Lucerne would lose a game without an audience up to 250’000 francs. And there's also the lack of support from the stands is. For a club like St. Gallen, she is "extremely important", as President Matthias Hüppi at the Assembly on Monday made it clear. Another example: When FC Winterthur in September 2019 FC St. Gallen to Cupspiel received, he sold for 8000 spectators for 100’000 Swiss francs for a beer. To protect the meadow, there are operators of food stands, which are in urgent need of audience and revenue to survive.

mind games? "The worst ever"

In the vote, but there was a small Alliance, which would have continued the championship without spectators. The Grasshoppers that are still on the search for investors among other things. The Club could cope with a few mind games, says interim President Andras Gurovits, even if only "reluctantly". Because a game without spectators is also GC tax: The stadium rent, the security and the Elimination of the individual entry form together a nearly six-figure amount, as head of sports, Fredy Bickel . Not sponsors and TV money are included.

Bickel says, mind games are the worst to be at all. He says this not as a functionary, but as a football romantic. He was for the continuation of the championship without spectators. "We have made the wrong choice," he says therefore. With the Cancellations of the championship, valuable days were lost. If the decision of the Federal Council on the 15. March goes out, it will come anyway to play Spirit. "And only a player who gets infected the whole Team in quarantine must," explains Bickel. Alternate data there is, then, hardly more.

Because of the game plan because of the Cancellations always crowded, it is well possible that the season 2019/20 takes longer than planned. Matchtag 36 and thus the end of the season on the 21. 22. May terminated, so on two days of the week. On the weekend of the Cup final will be held, one later on the first leg of the Barrage. And the Grasshoppers, you should create it in this Barrage, a Problem: your stadium.

The longer the season now, the more scarce it is for you. In the summer, the Letzigrund is not only used for soccer – already on 6. and 7. June big Events are: Rammstein plays the same twice in Zurich, provided that the concerts are not cancelled due to the Coronavirus, also. "We do not know where we could barrage game, otherwise, unsubscribe," says Gurovits. Also, according to the Rammstein-weekend, there is no room for GC, seven days later, the championship starts. To say what the effect will be the tournament, now is still speculative. In any case, national players from the 1. June will be turned off.

Canepa was for mind games and

Like all the other Clubs included, GC is now working to organize the test games, of course, to the exclusion of the Public. Next Saturday a against Xamax is to be held, on Friday the fact probably equal to two against FC Schaffhausen. So all the players would come to use, and in a kind of competition mode. And Gurovits sees in the whole mess, but still something Positive: "The break gives our coaches the opportunity to learn the team better." The same applies for two new players: Zé Turbo, and Mychell Chagas joined recently to Niederhasli.

in addition to GC, there were two more no-votes and one abstention. The latter came from FC Zurich, as no one to comment though. It is, however, President Ancillo Canepa argued similar to Gurovits, and for Ghost games said. The voice he was apparently under the impression that he got against the other Super League Clubs. Servette voted for the continuation of the championship, "the Virus will not be gone in 15 days," says Constantin Georges, the managing Director of the Geneva. You do understand the arguments that spoke against the spirit of the games, "the financial Situation could worsen for some Clubs, if the revenues fail to materialise on game days and at the same time the organization of the mind games costs a lot".

A club, the bears of spirit play hardly any damage, is Stade Lausanne-Ouchy. The promoted team currently plays at the Stade de Colovray Nyon and has an average attendance of approximately 450 people. The balance is noticeably there were about 2000 raised from the Derby against Lausanne in Nyon. And so they were at the Stade Lausanne for without an audience to play more. Head of sports, Hirac Yagan says, would play the club's home stadium, in Lausanne, would have looked like the decision would be different.
