The final Sunday. the black earth performed in opposition to Joventut Les Cortés B within the Catalan Third Division, the final class of the indoor soccer autonomic. The sport was canceled as a result of it began to rain in Barcelona. Yet another hardship in modest sport? No, not precisely.

Since its creation 10 years in the past, Terra Negra skilled and performed within the ZAL, a sports activities corridor embedded within the port space of ​​Barcelona and managed by the Port of Barcelona public physique. The place is way from the town and, above all, its entry by public transport is tough and because of this there have been by no means any issues selecting timetables. Just one different membership competed within the ZAL, Inter Hospitalet, additionally from the Catalan Third Division, and the Futsal and basketball sections of Espanyol. Because of this, coexistence was all the time calm. Till final December 9. They known as us from ZAL and so they instructed us that they had been going to do works, that we are able to not return. He missed us so much, however when the coach went there to get the fabric, we confirmed that one thing very unusual was occurring, he remembers. William Gutierrez, captain of the group in dialog with EL MUNDO. That very unusual factor had a reputation: Kings League, an organizer, Kosmosfirm of Gerard Piqueand lots of celebrities behind, Ibai Plains, Kun Agero, The Grefg or Iker Casillas.

To know extra

From at some point to the following, the ZAL grew to become the cupra area, the place the place Piqu went this Sunday with a Renault Twingo. From at some point to the following, Terra Negra needed to discover one other house and ended up within the courtyard of the IES Consell de Cent, the place there’s solely a altering room and no roof. If it rains, there is no such thing as a sport.

And the tough factor about his state of affairs is that the answer just isn’t a matter of cash. the folks of the kings league He has contacted us and provided to pay us for a pavilion, however there are not any free services. At this level within the season they solely provide us coaching beginning at 11 at night time or a 3rd of a monitor. They’ve left us stranded, explains Gonzlez in a criticism that has different echoes.

The sections of Espanyol, affected

As a result of though Inter Hospitalet discovered headquarters in a Gav pavilion 18 kilometers from ZAL, the sections of Espanyol are additionally wandering round Barcelona in the hunt for locations to coach. There is no such thing as a potential resolution. We search and seek for clues, we name colleges, non-public gyms and there’s nothing. Now we have needed to cancel coaching periods or throw out highschool patios, cement tracks. And in our case, the Kings League has not provided us something, they haven’t contacted us, he says Isidre Spike, answerable for the sections, which look a sure degree. The lads’s basketball group, for instance, is within the Catalunya Cup, one step away from the EBA League, and on Sunday they misplaced an important sport for promotion. Of their case, they do have a set monitor to compete, though the preparation is gibberish. The Terra Negra challenge is extra bloody.

I do not know the way we are going to finish. Really this season we’re fortunate as a result of the primary group went right down to Third and it was already the one one from the membership that performed within the ZAL. Different years the primary group, the second group and the inclusive futsal group performed there. Subsequent yr what’s going to occur? We have no idea. if we go up [son lderes destacados]In Segunda Catalana we won’t be able to play within the institute as a result of the rules require that there be a ceiling. Though at the very least in summer season we could have time to prepare ourselves, denounces Gutirrez, captain of the Torre Negra, who apparently should discover one other house.

As a result of the Kings League will finish on March 26, however predictably not depart the ZAL free. After all of the reform carried out -installation of synthetic grass, a number of screens…-, the Ladies’s Queens League It is because of begin in Could and a second males’s league cut up has already been introduced. Actually, the competitors is working to proceed increasing its undertaking and permitting an viewers within the ZAL stands.

As he ZAL because the kings league They may have finished it properly, warning prematurely, earlier than the beginning of the season and maybe we’d have already got every part resolved. However they’ve finished every part very badly, concludes Gutirrez. On Sunday, his group, Terra Negra, was enjoying in opposition to Joventut Les Cortés B within the Catalan Third Division, the final division of regional futsal, and the sport needed to be canceled as a result of it began to rain in Barcelona. Not less than he was in a position to present him the t-shirt with a message that he had made for the event: Do not get splashed by the Kings League.
