Por on top of renewing its squad for next season, the great challenge of the Celtic facing the year of his centenary must be to close the social fracture that has accompanied him during the last seasons.
The massive flight of spectators from the stands of Ballads and the palpable divorce of Celtism with the property of the club, invite us to take action. Celta is the team that has lost the most followers, live, in recent years and for the first time in its recent history it has not even provided the number of subscribers.
The cries of ‘Denis yes, Mourio no‘, in the match held against Elche, and the resounding whistle to the president, in his speech at the Nolito’s farewellare a palpable demonstration of the existing divorce.
But the fracture is even more evident when analyzing the number of spectators who have stopped attending Balados. Regardless of the general decline in football due to the pandemic, in the case of Celta the figures are a drama. This season they have hardly attended, to the vigus stadium, an average of 10,014 followers. The last complete, prior to covid-19, there were 17,603. They have lost more than 7,500 fans in the stands.
With the current capacity of the stadium, reduced by the works in it, a measure of forty percent of the seats have remained unoccupied. The challenge must be to occupy them again and recover social peace.
