The future of all sports is more uncertain than ever. The coronavirus crisis has stalled everything, and the Temporary Employment Regulation files have skyrocketed between companies. This measure has also reached football, and the two Second B Gironaese teams have decided to apply it. The Llagostera had it down his neck days ago and yesterday it was Olot who also decided to take the step and present the ERTO. At the same time, in the Third Division, Peralada and Figueres have also decided to resort to this measure and have also submitted one. Meanwhile, in Montilivi, Girona at the moment has not decided yet although all possible options are being weighed in order to financially support this crisis. In that sense, if the red-and-red club finally decided to go for an ERTO, they know that they would have the support, advice and coordination of LaLliga.
“Always pursuing the health and safety of our workers and following the instructions of the health authorities, Olot Sports Union hopes and wishes to resolve this exceptional and difficult situation to return to normal as soon as possible.” In this way, Olot justifies the presentation of an ERTO that affects all club employees. The crisis for COVID-19 has arrived at the worst moment for an Olot who was enjoying the best sporting moment in his recent history and even dreamed of fighting for play-off of ascent to Second A. The carob trees follow the same path as the Llagostera, which already has the file presented and pending approval.
In Third, the Peralada is the first club that chooses to file a temporary employment regulation file. The Alt-Empordà people presented it days ago and it is already being processed. “It is a logical measure. There’s total helplessness, “says athletic director Nitus Santos. Like Peralada, Figueres also opted for this measure and presented an ERTO. Banyoles, with a very different reality than the other clubs in Girona, is expecting. “We will value the situation day by day and be guided by common sense. We cannot contemplate so many scenarios, “says its president, Pau Teixidor, who thinks” the competition will not end. “
