The president of the Superior Court of Sports Justice for Football (STJD), Otávio Noronha, granted this Tuesday, the 14th, the requests of 17 clubs from the Brazilian Championship Serie A to revoke the injunction that released the presence of the public in the games of the Flamengo. The decision will be forwarded to the Prosecutor’s Office and to the CBF. According to Noronha, the meeting held in March 2021 was in another context of the pandemic in Brazil and with the evolution of the health situation, it is acceptable for the Rio club to be allowed to receive supporters. The STJD also argues that since September 2020 the CBF obtained the approval of the Ministry of Health to release ticket sales to fans. O Guild had filed a lawsuit in court to prevent the presence of the public in the return game of the Brazil’s Cup, at Maracanã, this Wednesday.
