The fans do not abandon Movistar Estudiantes

Movistar Estudiantes returns this Sunday to the WiZink Center to face El Prat (12:30, MD and LaLigaSportsTV) in the 6th round of the LEB Oro. And it does so with some uncertainty after last week’s tumble in Azpeitia (Guipúzcoa) in which they suffered the first defeat of the season by a resounding 88-72, but with a certainty: the hobby will not fail.

The descent to Second caused a social unrest derived, not from that simple fall to hell, but from the ominous decade in which the club immersed itself after being one of the greats of the ACB. From 2011 to 2012, Estudiantes was always below 50% of victories with a balance of 116-213 in 329 games (36.6%) and two unrealized declines in dispatches. Three if we have the Pandemic League in which the team was last with 5 wins out of 23 possible. Only two qualifications for Europe, outside the playoffs for the title since 2010 and three appearances in the Copa del Rey, the only one due to sporting merits in 2013.

A lot of drama and very little action. Few joys for a unique fan, through thick and thin, who did not want to leave the Jota Cuspinera boys alone in this walk through dark paths. In the only two games they have played at the Palacio de Deportes, the atmosphere was fantastic with 7,563 spectators against Lleida and 7,113 against Alicante, according to data from the Madrid team. And a similar landscape is expected before El Prat.

Restrictions in ACB

An average of 7,338 fans who only made it through three ACB matches this year. Burgos-Andorra and Burgos-Valencia with 7,793 and 7,610 spectators, respectively, and Baskonia-Madrid with 10,038. In the eight days that have been played in the First Division, none has an average of more than 5,000. The maximum, the 4,767 of the 6th day.

The schoolboys have been quite lucky. The LEB began on October 8, a week after the Government allowed communities with Endesa League clubs to increase their capacity to 80% when the first three days had already been played. And it was noticed: from three to four, the average in the ACB rose by almost 2,000 people, from 2,451 in the third to 4,103 in the fourth. Figures that will surely rise even more with the end of the public restrictions in most of the autonomous communities.
