Champions League match dubbed "Game Zero" of the Italian COVID-19 outbreak

 

"It was the biggest soccer game in Atalanta’s history and a third of Bergamo’s population made the short trip to Milan’s famed San Siro Stadium.

Nearly 2,500 fans of visiting Spanish club Valencia also traveled to that Champions League match.

 

More than a month later, experts are pointing to the Feb. 19 game as one of the biggest reasons why Bergamo has become one of the epicenters of the coronavirus pandemic — a “biological bomb” was the way one respiratory specialist put it — and why 35% of Valencia’s team became infected.

 

The match, which local media have dubbed “Game Zero,” was held two days before the first case of locally transmitted COVID-19 was confirmed in Italy."

Didnt City have issues at Columbia during a US Open Cup March? I dont think Columbia would let their Nazi fans in.


IIRC Columbia's stadium didn't meet CONCACAF standards.

 

In other related news: CONCACAF has standards

Sky Blue will need some dates as well.


Red Bull, Sky Blue, NYCFC, triple-headers? Maybe throw in another Ecuador friendly, as well?

Brazilian President Bolsonaro, whom Trump praised in yesterday's press conference, just called COVID-19 a "little cold". FYI - Brazil's numbers almost equal NJ's with 904 infected and 11 dead. Yes, it is hot down there right now, so that theory appears to not be valid.
