Recreativo warn of ‘last game’

Recreativo Huelva have warned this Saturday could see the final game in the club’s 126-year history as financial concerns mount.

The oldest club in Spain on Tuesday released a statement outlining the situation at Nuevo Colombino, in which it was confirmed ticket prices for the weekend’s fixture against Granada B would be set at €1.

AS notes the club emphasised the ‘seriousness of the current situation experienced by El Decano’ and spoke of a ‘dramatic end’ for the club.

The club is saddled with a debt of around €22m and a supporters’ trust attempt to take Recreativo from owner Pablo Comas has so far failed.

Around €2m is needed to ensure Recreativo finish the season but AS reports Comas is refusing to provide it, while employees have gone unpaid for eight months.

“After several months of neglect and daily uncertainty about our survival, there is clear conviction that the inability to solve any of the problems that arise daily will end up causing this 126-year history a dramatic end,” the statement read in part.

“The terrible indolence shown by those who must provide a solution to the current situation means the denouement is at hand.

“It is vital, and we demand strongly, that an exercise of responsibility takes place immediately. Tomorrow is too late.

“It is fair to do everything possible so that in the present circumstances the fans are more united than ever, fighting for their colours and showing the greatness and stateliness of the club and the fans.

“Anyone with any feeling for Recre may accompany the team for €1 next Saturday against Granada B, which much to our regret, could be the last game of the old Dean.”
