Argentina Has Been Fighting The Two Hedge Funds For Too Long

The Argentine soccer season is set to resume on Thursday after the country’s football association and the players’ union agreed to end an impasse over unpaid wages.

The first division championship will restart when Velez Sarsfield hosts Estudiantes on Thursday, local media reported.

The Argentine government last week agreed to pay the clubs 22.7 million US dollars to compensate for a cancelled television rights contract.
