understand the controversy

The dispute began last week, when the MPGO (Public Ministry of the State of Goiás) argued that the Goiás and Corinthians fans “have a history of great rivalry” and recommended a ban on visitors to “avoid acts of violence”.

The local Public Security Secretariat reinforced the request, the CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation) accepted the recommendation, and last Tuesday (11) the Goiás club opened the sale of tickets only to its fans.

Corinthians then called the STJD to try to count on its supporters at the Goiás stadium, even though the decision came at the last minute. And that’s what happened yesterday, around 9 pm (Brasília time), less than 48 hours before the ball rolled in Goiânia, at 7 pm tomorrow.

The injunction issued by the president of the STJD, Otávio Noronha, makes Goiás responsible for ensuring the safety of the fans, as they are the principal of the match. The decision avoids what he calls an “imbalance to the competition”, after all, the match in the first round had both fans.

“What cannot be allowed is that, at this point, irreparable damage to the balance of the tournament and the performance of the visiting club can be done. [Corinthians]due to the fact that the home club [Goiás] not having adopted the necessary measures, in order, if necessary, to transfer the match to a stadium that seemed more suitable”, understands Noronha in the decision.
