The Portuguese Football Federation said in a statement on Monday that the money donated by Ronaldo and his teammates would go towards a fund created to help the amateur clubs survive the current crisis with hopes that the money received could grow as much as 4.7 million euros ($5.1million).

The Football Federation in Portugal last week decided to end the already suspended amateur season, declaring the season null and void without champions, no promotions nor relegation. But no decision has been taken about the professional football season resuming but the president of the Portuguese league noted in late March that he was determined the Professional football season was completed.

“It is fundamental that the championships end because it would allow some sort of normality to be restored and we could prepare for next season knowing who has qualified for international competitions, who the champions are and who is relegated,” Pedro Proenca said. Photo Credit: Getty
