They will be articulated in the form of loans at 0% interest, but will not be granted automatically to whoever requested it according to what corresponds, but a commission will be responsible for studying requests and granting such loans.

As is already well known, 15% of the money corresponding to each club may be used to expand salary limits (pressing many need in the short term), another 15% to settle debts derived from the crisis by the COVID-19 and the Another 70% to improve infrastructures. A section, the latter, very broad, that not only cigains stadiums, sports cities or social venues, but also encompasses the professional structures of clubs, very precarious in Spain compared to those who have premiere teams and the Bundesliga

In the end, the directives tend to prioritize that all the money in the account is in the field and leave aside that facet that allows you to continue growing to The entity, unless they have an incentive to bet on it. Now, if the agreement with CVC is approved, they will have it, "adds a convenient source of the small print.
