Concacaf foresees maximum capacity for the duel of Mexico vs. El Salvador.


The confederation that organizes the Gold Cup competition sent an invitation to all the fans to attend the stadium in an orderly manner.

This Sunday night, the last match of the Concacaf Gold Cup Group stage will take place. The team led by Gerardo Martino will seek a victory that will place them in first place of Group A and qualify for the next phase of the competition.

The Mexican National Team will face the El Salvador National Team at 9:00 p.m. Central Mexico at the Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas, Texas. 

As this is the last match of the regular stage, many fans are expected to celebrate the try.

Faced with this situation, CONCACAF shared an official statement about the public's plan to come to the venue to enjoy the game.

He explained that he expects a maximum capacity in the stadium, so he invited fans who do not have a ticket not to go to the place.

This indication was given to avoid crowding of people since the contingency for COVID-19 is still active, mainly in Mexico. Concacaf warned that the sale of tickets would be limited and online so that access will not be sold at the box office.

Through a statement, the organizing confederation of the Gold Cup tournament detailed the following:

"Concacaf announced that many spectators are expected in today's Group A Gold Cup game Mexico vs. El Salvador, to be played at the historic Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Fans who have not yet secured tickets are urged to stay away from the stadium today as tickets will not be on sale at the stadium box office. "

He also pointed out that those people who already have their tickets come to the venue on time and abide by the staff's instructions. On the other hand, they indicated that the different television stations would broadcast the game with the rights to cover the competition.

On the other hand, the statement commented that tickets for the final of the Gold Cup at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas were sold out in just 90 minutes, which is considered the fastest sale in the history of the tournaments.

Contact and the homophobic scream

Previously, the Central American confederation spoke about the situation around the cry that incites discrimination and homophobia. The Mexican fans have used the phrase that FIFA prohibited. During Mexico's first Gold Cup matches, this offense was already incurred.

That is why the Concacaf took action to punish people who make use of the cry. For the El Tri game against Guatemala, a series of messages were posted to invite the public to behave under the guidelines of zero discrimination.

They pointed out that there would be zero tolerance, and in case someone made use of the shout, the person would be removed from the stadium.

Through posters, banners, and advertisements displayed on the field and screens of the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas, Concacaf warned that "if you use the discriminatory language you will be expelled from the stadium, the game could be suspended or abandoned, and there will be no refunds. "

Now, facing the last game of the general phase, it is expected that the actions to eradicate the chant that sounds every time a goalkeeper clears the ball will not appear on the rostrum in Mexico vs. El Salvador match.

The same Mexican National Team once again resumed its campaigns to promote respect on and off the field.
