However, negotiations to extend the link are well under way. The expectation was that the new agreement would be signed this Tuesday. However, the meeting between representatives of the club and Minas Arena was postponed to this Thursday.
The tendency is that the new contract defines yet another “package” of games from Atlântico as principal in Mineiro. Even before the agreement was signed, the club communicated Confederao Brasileira de Futebol (CBF) that it will use the stadium for at least three more matches of Series A, against Fluminense, Sport and Flamengo.
In the Atlantic board, the main enthusiast of the permanence in Mineiro is the president Srgio Sette Cmara. There were two most relevant factors that led the black and white dome to decide to continue in the stadium: the coach (since the team has not lost as principal since February) and the financial.
There is still no definition on the date of the fans’ return to the stadiums. Meeting last weekend, clubs and CBF understood that it is not yet the moment. The expectation of the entity that the bleachers return to receive fans in November, in the first round of the return. In the case of Atltico, it would be a confrontation with Flamengo.
