The reprogramming of the Super League due to the coronavirus pandemic forced some expected changes in Argentine soccer. However, and in light of doubts about the date of return to activity, the possibility that there will be no decreases in the next tournaments has gained strength in recent days.
Furthermore, in the AFA are seriously evaluating in the next two tournaments bringing the total number of teams in the First Division to 30 . "Boca does not want to know anything about adding teams to the tournament," journalist Martín Costa revealed this midday.
He even went further and assured that "Boca wants to reduce the tournament. Obviously, this will take a couple of seasons to reach 20 teams, which is the ideal." In addition, he explained that "Ameal is not at all in agreement with this of suspending the descents mid-season, regardless of the situation."
Costa explained that the Boca president wants to end the Super League Cup and comply with the promotions and descents that were stipulated before the tournament began. Boca has already spoken publicly about it through its leaders, although the final word will be with the AFA.
Finally, the journalist highlighted that there are several teams "that think like Boca" and they are "thinking of a 26-team championship to start." For now, the reality is that there is a lot of uncertainty and the next few weeks will be key to defining the future of soccer in Argentina.
