FC Aarau in good shape, leader of the table as guests of the GC – in Brügglifeld everything was ready for a football party until Friday morning. But then FC Aarau got the message, which sadly is only a matter of time these days: a positive Corona case in their ranks.
A member of the medical department was infected. Ten players who, despite wearing a mask, have had close and longer contact with this person in recent days, were immediately quarantined by FC Aarau. With the result that the Swiss Football League (SFL) canceled the game on Friday night as a precaution.
Decisive quarantine decision for rescheduling
The question that now arises: when will Aarau-GC fix it? The decision of the doctor of the Canton of Aargau Yvonne Hummel has a decisive influence on this: she will probably decide on Saturday whether the ten players quarantined by the FCA will have to stay there. In that case, according to the SFL rules, FC Aarau can request that the match be postponed until the isolated players are “free” again – and the SFL will approve it.
If Hummel frees the ten players from precautionary quarantine, the match could theoretically take place this weekend. SFL, FC Aarau and GC are expected to find a replacement date quickly. This would also be conceivable during the international break which starts on Monday. The TV broadcaster “Blue”, which broadcasts the game on its free channel, will also have a say in the reprogramming.
