Last Wednesday, Jose Luis Martinez-Almeida reported through its official account ‘X’ that a giant screen was going to be installed in the Plaza de Felipe II, in the Salamanca district, to enjoy the quarter-final match of the Euro Cup between Spain and Germany starting at 18:00. Now, the mayor of Madrid has also published on his social networks that they have suspended the event.

The reasons are due to the high temperatures expected today. “The safety and physical integrity of the people of Madrid is the most important thing,” he wrote.

He also communicated this from the Ramales Squarewhere he stated that the weather conditions necessary for all Madrid residents to be able to watch football outdoors in this square do not exist.

«Temperatures of up to 39 degrees are expected and the safety and physical integrity of the people of Madrid is above all other considerations for us. What we have to do is watch it in places properly protected from the very high temperatures, but It would be an unnecessary risk if we put that screen and that thousands and thousands of Madrid residents could be exposed to extremely high temperatures,” he said.

In fact, Madrid Emergencies has warned that the city council’s heat protocol remains activated and has warned that temperatures of up to almost forty degrees are expected.

Nevertheless, Yes, the Sports Night will continuewhich will take place from 9 pm in Plaza de Colón, and where the necessary means will be provided to guarantee the safety of the attendees, who will have enough water to keep them hydrated.
