Recently, Royal Sociedad President Joaquin Aperibe held a press conference to discuss the team’s situation during the epidemic.
Aperibe said the team lost 15 million due to the epidemic, but the budget is still sufficient. In addition, he also stated that Atletico Madrid was unable to pay the transfer share at the agreed time, and the team agreed to their request for extension.
"We now have 35,222 full members. During the epidemic, 142 members opted out, 364 new members completed registration, and 188 people are queuing."
"In the 19/20 season, we promised to refund 70% of all season ticket holders, and now it’s all received. In the 20/21 season, we plan to sell season tickets at half price, and buyers can get 21/22 season ticket discounts. We are currently considering normal fees for the 21/22 season tickets."
"We are now planning to open some of the Subieta stands. As long as the Health Bureau allows, we will open some of the stands for the women's team and team B from next weekend. We will strictly abide by the relevant anti-epidemic regulations and complete registration measures."
"The Copa del Rey final date has not yet been set because no one can predict when the virus will die. The position of the Western Football Association has always been consistent with us. We will wait until the audience can enter the stadium before holding the final."
"The scandal between William Jose and Sevilla is real, and the scandal between us and Carlos Fernandez is also real. But because neither party can accept the other's request, the transfer did not take place. I and William-Jose had a meal together. I have full confidence in him. He is the best center forward of the Royal Sociedad in recent years. I believe he is determined to face the future."
"We don't need to sell any players in order to deal with financial problems. It is obviously more important to maintain a strong squad than to maintain a good-looking book. The new generation of central defenders from Real Sociedad has emerged, and we must place greater hopes on them. This is the reason for selling Diego Llorente. I believe we can end the season in a positive way while helping the young central defender grow up."
"La Liga has done a good job in broadcasting and sharing in recent years. Our club does not need to worry too much. In my opinion, it is difficult for anyone to operate La Liga like Tevas.
"Atletico Madrid originally planned to pay the second transfer share in May. However, due to the impact of the epidemic, they are unable to pay. I understand the financial problems of Atletico. Under the epidemic, no team can operate as before. I Agreed to their request."
"Thanks to the players for lowering their salaries in April. We have returned to normal salaries at the beginning of this season. We don't need to let the players pay for the epidemic."
