CONMEBOL and Córdoba authorities estimate a maximum audience of 15,000 people at the South American final

Despite being everywhere in the central region of Córdoba (Argentina), the Sao Pauloalone, will not be able to fill the Mario Kempes Stadium in the final of Copa Sudamericana, against Independiente del Valle. according to THROW! According to Conmebol, just over 10,000 tickets had been sold to Brazilians until the publication of this report.

Sources from the organization who did not want to be identified, along with authorities in the Argentine city, estimate that just over 15,000 people should attend to watch the match in loco. A meager number since the capacity of Mário Kempes is 57,000 fans.

The effect is visible. In the approximately two hours that the report spent at the Municipal Convention Center, where fans exchange vouchers for tickets, only five tricolors went to the place.

The number of tickets estimated by CONMEBOL does not include tickets destined for Del Valle. The club waived the initial charge of 15,000 tickets and ordered just 1,500 tickets. On the streets, throughout Friday (31/9), the L! saw only two Ecuadorian fans, who refused to be interviewed. Most of the amount ended up with family members of athletes, coaching staff, leaders and even local politicians.

The expectation of Conmebol, which will keep tickets on sale until the time of the game, is that there will be at least 3,000 more tickets sold. Hope lies in the 19 arrivals by plane and 28 by bus in the city until early this Saturday afternoon. Besides, of course, the caravans of organized supporters. Independent, the largest tricolor faction alone, has 21 collectives on the roads.

But what about the locations? Basically all Cordobesians don’t care about the match. Until Friday morning, few knew about the game. But the massive presence of Brazilians on the streets spending and a local radio campaign drew attention to the game. The problem is the price. For them, the price in dollars, above that charged by Brazilians, weighs heavily on their pockets, given the financial crisis and inflation that plague Argentines.

In interviews given by members of the municipal government of Córdoba heard by the L! on radio and television, there is the promise of raffle tickets for the game. How the process would work, however, was not disclosed.

Nothing that shakes the locals, since the most important thing for them, the teams in the city, play this weekend. Both at Mario Kempes. And both are sold out. Talleres plays on Sunday (2) against Lanús. They need the win to escape the risk of relegation. Belgrano enters the field on Monday (3) against Chacarita Juniors for the second division. The match is a party, as the club has just gained access to the elite next season. South American? Next time maybe…
