Valencia and Levante request to postpone matches after deadly fire

Valencia and Levante have requested to postpone their upcoming La Liga matches following a deadly fire in Valencia.

The fire, which broke out on Thursday, killed at least four people and left more than 15 others missing.

Valencia issued a statement saying it was “devastated” by the tragedy and had requested that its match against Granada on Saturday be postponed.

The club also said it would hold a minute of silence before its training sessions on Friday in memory of the victims.


Levante also requested that its match against Andorra on Saturday be postponed.

In a statement, the club said it was “united in pain” with the families and friends of the victims and thanked the emergency services for their work.

The requests to postpone the matches have been granted by La Liga. The fire is the latest in a series of tragedies to hit Valencia in recent years.

In 2017, a terrorist attack killed 16 people and injured more than 140 others. And in 2019, a flash flood killed 13 people and caused widespread damage.

The city is still recovering from these tragedies, and the fire has only added to the pain and suffering of the people of Valencia.

The decision to postpone the matches is a sign of respect for the victims and their families.

It is also a way for the city to come together and show its support for those who have been affected by the tragedy.


Our thoughts are with the people of Valencia during this difficult time.
