– In consideration of the letter SFC-CRTA 044/22 sent by its affiliate Santos Futebol Clube, with the request to change the place, date and time of the match valid for the 15th round of the Brazilian Serie A Football Championship 2022, Santos x Flamengo, we inform you that, having heard the holder of the broadcasting rights, it is impossible to change the game, given the impossibility of adapting the broadcaster’s grid – said the CBF.
Keeping the match for Saturday, the match returns to Vila Belmiro. This is because CBF changed the match between Palmeiras and Athletico-PR at 9pm the same day. The Public Prosecutor and the Military Police do not allow the big names of the state to act on the same day in the capital.
The change of game between the Paulista club and Paranaense takes place due to the regular interval between the match in question and the match of Athletico-PR of Conmebol Libertadores.
Santos president Andres Rueda confirmed last week on ESPN’s Rolou o Melão podcast that he wants to send this comparison to Barueri.
– We intend to use Barueri as our alternative field. Our intention is to play the match against Flamengo outside, probably, at the Barueri Arena. The match against Deportivo Táchira will depend a lot on Conmebol’s decision on free-kick or not, we are still seeing. This match against Corinthians for the Copa do Brasil we intend to do in Vila Belmiro – Rueda told the podcast.
