The Spanish soccer federation has announced that its team will take over the Copa del Rey stadium in the capital Madrid, after the owners of Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid agreed to sell the stadium.
The announcement, made Friday, comes a day after Spanish soccer fans held a massive protest in protest at the Spanish government’s failure to prevent the Zika virus outbreak.
“The Madrid government is responsible for this situation,” said the federation’s president, Alejandro Mancillas, in a statement.
A source close to the project said it would be possible for the team to take over a large section of the stadium, with some sections set aside for a “free-for-all.” “
At the moment, the situation is getting worse.”

It is not yet clear how long the team will have to take control of the entire stadium.
A video posted on YouTube by Spanish news channel Canal 3 shows a group of soccer fans wearing yellow shirts and red shorts sitting on a large concrete platform surrounded by an orange fence.
The video shows the group of supporters shouting slogans in Spanish, including “Más peligro,” “El comenzado de tiempo, estás no cada es la lucha,” “This will not be allowed.”
At least one person is seen throwing a stone at the fence.
In the video, a woman wearing a green shirt and a pink scarf holds a sign reading “No More Soccer.”
The soccer team has been playing games in the Copan stadium, where they are also located.
It was not immediately clear how many people have joined the protest.
