Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Manchester United and this means a media blow to the world of football. The Portuguese coach left Juventus and surpassed Lionel Messi in terms of shirt sales in the first 24 hours after the number he would wear on his shirt was revealed.
Messi had already made his PSG debut when he came on as a substitute in the game against Reims and Cristiano Ronaldo will do the same on Saturday, September 11, against Newcastle at 9:00 am Central Mexico time and you’ll be able to follow it live on Sky, unlike British fans, who won’t be able to watch CR7’s debut on television.
The record that Cristiano Ronaldo took from Brady, LeBron and Messi
Why can’t they see Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut?
Only those present at Old Trafford will be able to follow the match live, as the match will be blocked on television byA law that has been in effect since 1964 to not broadcast matches from 2:45pm to 5:15pm, UK time. The Manchester United game is scheduled for 3pm, so those wishing to watch the match will have to watch the postponed broadcast.
This is related to a bill promoted by Burnley’s president, Bob Lord, who called for matches not to be broadcast at that time to protect local teams.
The director interpreted that star matches, for example Liverpool vs Chelsea, were broadcast during that period, small team fans won’t go to the stadium to see media-supported matches and it will affect the economy of the simplest team.
This way, if the main game is played from 2:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., it will be blocked from the television. This is called a “blackout”.
FA Cup, the only exception
The FA Cup Final is the only match that can be scheduled at this time without being blocked, and this was until 2012, when schedule changed to 18:00 (12:00 Central Mexico time).
In this way, fans who want to see Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut will have to wait for a suspended transmission or look for a link to watch the match live stream.
Can it be seen in Mexico?
Yes, this law only applies to the UK, Cuba, Afghanistan, North Korea and Turkmenistan, according to with country. Throughout Europe, Asia and America, transmission is live and without major problems.
