How will Ronaldo Save Amateur Competitions in Portugal?

The Portuguese Football Association announced the concession of star Cristiano Ronaldo, and his colleagues in the national team and members of the technical staff for half of the value of the rewards they received after reaching the Euro 2020 which was postponed until later.

The players waived these sums to contribute to the support of amateur football in the country, which was heavily affected by the Coronavirus, which led to the cancellation of competitions and caused great suffering to the small clubs that will not bear the brunt of this crisis.

“This donation may strengthen the support fund that was created to assist regional associations and amateur clubs with an amount of 4.7 million euros,” the union statement said.

The move comes after the amateur competition season in Portugal was canceled without specifying any winner, while the fate of the professional leagues remains unknown and suspended until the moment.

It is reported that the Portuguese national team was close to defending the title it won in 2016, but it will wait until perhaps 2021 after the Euro 2020 tournament was postponed.
