The Andalusian Football Federation (RFAF) has announced this Friday afternoon the postponement of the match that the UD Almería ‘B’ team was to play next Sunday against Marbella FC after some Malaga-based team players have tested positive for Covid-19. The new date for this game will be 2nd February with a kick-off yet to be determined.

The Academy youngsters are showing endless patience this 2022 as their first three games have already been rearranged due to the pandemic. The first of them will see the Rojiblancos hosting Huétor Tájar at the Juegos Mediterraneos Stadium on Wednesday, 19th January for a 6:45pm kick-off.

UD Almería ‘B’ have not been able to play even one game since Juventud Torremolinos CF visited the Anexo Juegos Mediterraneos on 19th December, 2021. Since then, after the youth Indálicos’ 2-1 victory over their last rivals and the subsequent Christmas break, there has been plenty of Covid-19 outbreaks due the new omicron variant that has started to spread across the World lately, which has affected several Tercera Division RFEF, including the UDA Academy ‘B’ team.

All in all, three games to be played by the UDA youth team have been rearranged as a significant number of ongoing cases of Covid-19 within the Rojiblancos squad,  Huétor Tájar and now Marbella FC have prevented the sides from competing.
