Beyond the fully compressed schedule of the tournament due to the particular year with the Qatar World Cup in November and December to find a new date for the meeting, this is a tremendous logistical upheaval for the team from Santiago, which has been in the Federal Capital since yesterday to wait for this match.

Communiqué from Central Córdoba pointing to Vélez for the suspension of the match

“That the suspension of the aforementioned meeting was arranged by the Football Security Committee of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, and is based on the impossibility of providing security coverage at the Velez Sarfield stadium, as a consequence of the performance of a artistic event at the Campo Argentino de Polo, which was communicated to our institution on September 12, 2022 at 9:00 p.m.

In this sense, and considering that the artistic event to which the public body refers, as well as the match with the Velez Sarfield Club, were scheduled considerably in advance, the grounds put forward by the Football Safety Committee of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires to support the suspension of the meeting, which is why we reserve the right to raise the corresponding protest to the Disciplinary Court of the Argentine Football Association, since we did not find a reason of force majeure that disclaims responsibility to the local club due to the impossibility of organizing the event, who, far from seeking a solution, have adopted a passive behavior regarding the decision of the public body that prevents the match from being held.

The sporting and economic damages caused to our institution by this arbitrary and unusual decision, notified less than 24 hours before the match, are clear. Our professional team has been in the city of Buenos Aires since yesterday, with all that moving from our city means, and the defense of our interests prevails in a circumstance of which we are totally unrelated”reads part of the letter.
