Getafe will offer season tickets for the next La Liga campaign for free to current holders in compensation for matches the coronavirus has taken from them, the club announced on Thursday.

The measure was announced by club president Angel Torres during an interview with Radio Marca, as fans face the prospect of not being able to attend the rest of the season -- suspended since mid-March -- should the remaining matches be played this summer.
