Despite the fact that it is not yet known where the match will be played and the difficulty of combining the schedule with a working Monday, UD Logroñés has received 107 ticket requests for the playoff semifinal match against Villarreal B (Sunday, 18: 00; Riazor, A Malata or Balaídos).

This Monday at 7:00 p.m. the first deadline to get these seats has ended. As always, the team will not be alone or 600 kilometers from home. Many fans are still waiting for the venue to be known to buy their ticket. For these cases, the red and white entity has explained that the RFEF will open a second sales period and will report on it, despite the fact that there is less than a week left for the clash.

The RFEF has detailed that the reservation of locations -in the next term- is mandatory for the subsequent purchase. In other words, tickets will only be sold to those who have previously requested them, within the indicated periods. In addition, it will be an essential requirement to include name, surnames and DNI.

The joy of the UD Logroñés fans for qualifying for the Second Division playoff collides with the anger towards the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for organizing the promotion phase. With six days to go, the only certainty that the red and white fans have is that the match will be played in Galicia.

To make the anger even greater, the RFEF has forced the purchase of tickets before 7:00 p.m. this Monday. Without knowing the headquarters! There are three available that will be ‘awarded’ according to the requests for tickets made by the clubs: one in La Coruña at the Riazor stadium, another in Vigo at Balaidos and another in Ferrol at the A Malata stadium. It so happens that both Deportivo and Racing de Ferrol could play at home.

“For the purposes of capacity needs for each match, the sum of the tickets requested by each of the two contenders of each of the four scheduled semifinals will be taken into account,” explained the entity chaired by Luis Rubiales. The comments about it on social networks are continuous.

To the ignorance of location also joins the designated schedule. A Sunday afternoon does not seem like the best time to go to a football match more than six hundred kilometers from home, returning to Logroño well into the night. In fact, all the teams that dispute the playoff are several hours away (Villarreal, Albacete, Tarragona, Linares and Rayo Majadahonda) except for the Galicians. At the door of the house.

Because the “single headquarters” seems to have come to stay. There will be no parties in the stadiums of the teams with full stands. There will be no cuts on the way to football. There will be no match day in Logroño, although work is being done to create a ‘fan zone’ with a giant screen to bring together as many fans as possible. In the absence of mass displacement, an intermediate solution at home.
