Real Madrid will play home matches at Valladolid if Covid-19 restrictions enforced

Real Madrid will play their home matches at the stadium of Real Valladolid if Covid-19 restrictions are enforced in the Spanish capital.

As detailed by Diario AS, a number of clubs are having to nominate opposition club stadium’s to play home matches in should their own facilities no longer be of use.

Madrid have nominated Valladolid’s José Zorrilla stadium should their facilities of the Santiago Bernabeu or their Alfredo Di Stefano – where they finished their 2019/20 campaign – stadiums no longer be available.

The Spanish FA are urging clubs to find agreement with rival clubs to use their facilities should their own become unavailable due to local restrictions over the course of the 2020/21 season, which could be disrupted by the pandemic.

Fuenlabrada and Malaga have come to a mutual agreement to use the other club’s facilities should their own become unavailable, while the same is true for Villarreal and Espanyol and a separate report claims Atletico Madrid will play at Real Sociedad for ‘home’ matches.
