The possible debut of Cristiano Ronaldo this weekend with the Manchester United jersey will not be televised on any UK network due to the ‘blackout’ at 15:00 in the afternoon whereby no match at that time is broadcast.
This measure, in force since the 60s, is aimed at promoting the influx of the public to the stadiums, especially in the minor leagues, preventing fans from preferring to stay at home watching the game on television.
This will affect those who wish to see Cristiano Ronaldo re-dress in Manchester United colors this Saturday at Old Trafford against Newcastle United. as none of the 3:00 pm games will be broadcast.
With the return of the public to the stadiums this season (the allowed capacity is 100%), the temporary suspension of the ‘blackout’ has ended and the matches of that time slot will not be seen on any British channel, but will be seen outside the country.
The Portuguese footballer could be ready to take to the pitch this weekend, after he appeared today for his second consecutive training session, after meeting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Tuesday in the sports city of Carrington. The Portuguese player received permission to travel to Manchester and meet his new teammates after being suspended in the duel that will face his team against Azerbaijan. EFE (HN)
