Football matches, like all public gatherings, have been postponed across the majority of the world due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the game has been allowed to continue in the Central American nation of Nicaragua.
The Primera Liga de Nicaragua is thought to be one of only four leagues in action despite the global lockdown, with the Clausura part of the season at the semifinal stage.
Matches are being played behind closed doors, but that hasn't stopped fans from turning up in droves to watch their team play.
Images from Wednesday evening show fans of Managua FC congregating on a grass bank next to the Estadio Nacional to watch their team play Walter Ferretti FC in the second leg of their semifinal.
Local supporters were unable to resist the allure of watching live football despite the games being broadcast live on local television and streamed on Facebook.
The semifinal was played while attempting to observe social distancing regulations, but that proved a little difficult to maintain on the pitch.
Managua eventually emerged victorious with a 4-2 win, leaving them to celebrate in front of an eerily empty stand as they saluted the supporters beyond the perimeter fence.
While under strict instruction to keep physical contact to a minimum, the Managua players couldn't resist a celebratory hug in the dressing room afterward.
Jose Maria Bermudez, general secretary of the Nicaraguan Football Federation, insists the decision to allow the season to conclude is safe as things stand.
"We were given information by the health officials and we took a decision based on that. We are not the government, we run football," he told Reuters earlier this month. "If things get worse or out of control, we will have to suspend the tournament to protect lives."
However, matches continuing to be played has raised concerns at CONCACAF, the governing body for the sport in North and Central America and the Caribbean.
"It's a bit of a head-scratcher, I've got to be honest, but whatever we can do to put pressure on to ensure that the players are safe is to us paramount," CONCACAF president Victor Montagliani said on April 14. "From what I've seen, I think this has been pushed by the government, and so that's one of the things we're trying to wrap our head around."
