Rubiales to call elections in August

Luis Rubiales continues with his intention to call elections for the presidency of the Royal Spanish Football Federation as soon as possible. According to Cadena SER’s Lar El Larguero ’program, it will announce it in the coming days and August is the most likely month for its celebration.

It will be possible thanks to the changes in the electoral regulations approved by the Board of Directors of the Higher Sports Council on May 19 in a telematic meeting.

As soon as Rubiales makes this call official, the expectation will be focused on knowing if Iker Casillas finally appears or not in these elections. Since the coronavirus health crisis began, her candidacy has lost strength. Apparently, he stopped any movement and right now is an unknown quantity.

In addition to this, it seems that Rubiales has the necessary support tied to re-election.
