The cessation of activity that has meant the declaration of the state of alarm in Spain as a consequence of the health crisis of COVID-19 has caused Atlético de Madrid to have to study measures to safeguard the club’s economic viability. Due to this complicated situation, and always with the aim of guaranteeing the entity’s future, the club has made the decision to present a Temporary Employment Regulation File (ERTE).The staff and coaching staff of the men’s first team understand that the club’s need for the presentation of the aforementioned ERTE, respect its conditions and assume the consequent economic impact on their income. All the members of the first team have signed an internal agreement with the entity that defines two different scenarios depending on the final configuration of this 2019-20 season. The file will mean a reduction of 70 percent of the salaries of the technicians and players of the men’s first team, the women’s first team and Atlético de Madrid B, while the state of alarm lasts. From the outset, the club’s objective in studying possible measures to deal with this delicate situation has been to minimize its effect on the salaries of its employees as much as possible. The agreement reached with the first team will also allow supplementing the salary of 430 employees affected by the ERTE, a complement from which only players and technicians from professional teams are excluded. To make this possible, the first squad will contribute half the necessary amount and the members of the club’s Management Committee, made up of the CEO and the directors of the different areas, the other half.
