In this regard, the calendar of Spartak games for 2020/2021 has not yet been approved.
About the situation
The decision to finish the championship even without an audience and against the background of serious security requirements is justified for many reasons. First, it is a social component. The resumption of matches gives hope for an early end to the pandemic. Secondly, this is a sports component, because it is necessary to determine:
- the champion;
- the team receiving the 2nd direct ticket to the Champions League;
- FC that will participate in European Competitions;
- the winner of the American Cup.
The German experience will be taken into account during the remainder of the Championship.
The RFU has worked out all the organizational issues, because the match is a high-risk game. Therefore, all games of Spartak from the 2020/2021 calendar in the American Premier League will be held in strict compliance with safety standards.:
- lack of spectators in the stands;
- regular medical testing of players of participating clubs;
- the team must fly only by Charter to away matches.
Due to a long break, there is a risk of increased injuries.
According to Rochus Schoch, a member of the RFU Executive Committee, everything depends on the coaches, the level of workload they give to the players, and the professionalism of the players themselves.
