Mallorca fans in the new East stand melt in the sun. | Majorca Daily Bulletin reporter
In the first ever La Liga encounter between these two evenly matched teams, RCD Mallorca and newly-promoted Girona played out a dramatic 1-1 draw in front of 13,390 sweltering fans on Saturday afternoon. The stifling 34ºC heat plus the 68% humidity played a big part in proceedings both on and off the pitch. The intense heat turned the mostly concrete Son Moix into an inferno and many fans left the new “East stand” at half time and didn’t come back, it was just too hot.
