Why single fans in Goiás vs Corinthians?
The recommendation that only Goiás fans can attend the game came from the Goiás Public Ministry, issued by the Special Action Group in Major Football Events. The objective is, according to the MPGO, “andprevent acts of violence between the organized supporters of the two teams, which have a history of great rivalry”.
On June 19, 2022, when the teams faced each other at Neo Química Arena for the first round of the Brasileirão, São Paulo and Goiás became involved in conflicts. At the time, the fight took place on Marginal Tietê and, according to the MP, ended with people injured and 17 detained.
In addition, the recommendation takes into account the structure of the Haile Pinheiro Stadium (Serrinha). As it does not have exclusive and safe access routes for the visiting fans, the location of the match is considered an aggravating factor for the decision.
