We already said when we arrived that our objective in the entity is long term and we will continue like this, “said Kohlberg.

With respect to the next season of subscribers, Díaz has admitted that there was “uncertainty” on that issue because they did not know when the spectators will return to the stadiums, and whether or not there will be a limited capacity due to the coronavirus health crisis.
