Everything is ready for the last League match of the season between Real Racing Club and Athletic Club to be played at the Sardinero on Saturday, 21 May at 22:00 hours. The Red-Whites led by the board members Jone Miren Artetxebarria and Jesús Arancibia, along with Jose Angel Iribar left Lezama by bus at 12:00 hours and got to the Palacio del Mar Hotel in Santander just before 13:30.
Lunch was at 14:00 hours, and during this meal the expedition members were paid a visit by the President Fernando García Macua, who alongside the above mentioned board members and Juan Antonio Zarate and Jorge Alejandre took part in the institutional joint luncheon offered by Real Racing Club. After a nap, at 18:45 hours, the premier team is expected to have afternoon tea and then head off to the pitch, which is very close to the hotel, at around 20:45 hours.
Furthermore, at 12:00 hours the habitual delegate meeting was held to remind everyone of the fundamental rules that will be in force during the match, for example the obligation of being on the field of play five minutes prior to kick off, the prohibition of showing chronometers and results of other matches on the video screen as well as the prohibition of having interviews.
