Cruzeiro decided not to hold a public event on January 2, marking the club’s 101st anniversary. The decision was made based on the timing of the Covid-19 pandemic. In many cities in Brazil, including Belo Horizonte, there will be no public New Year’s Eve event.
As it traditionally happens, the club will hold a mass in honor of the 101st anniversary. This is the only official celebration scheduled for next Sunday.
Although the idea of holding a public event has been abandoned, Ronaldo, the new director of football for Cruzeiro, plans to be in Belo Horizonte on the second day. The tendency is for him to hold a press conference (perhaps virtual), the first exclusive talk about the Heavenly Club.

Since the announcement of Ronaldo’s acquisition of 90% of the shares of SAF do Cruzeiro by fans, they have started their campaigns on social networks to celebrate the club’s anniversary in Mineirao, in the presence of the ace.
Without this possibility, the club plans to “present” Ronaldo to the public on January 26, against URT, in the team’s debut at Campeonato Mineiro. The match will be in Mineirao, the time has not yet been decided, the presence of the manager still depends on the adjustments in the schedule.
Although today the Covid-19 epidemic is causing the authorities to cancel public events, such as New Year’s Eve and even the Carnival, Cruzeiro considers the possibility of having Ronaldo next to the fans on the 26th due to greater control over who enters, while realizing the exams and introducing the vaccination scheme against virus.
