Soccer Promoters Beef Up Security For Exhibition In Las Vegas
Planet Futbol, promoters of Saturday's soccer friendly at Sam Boyd Stadium between Liga MX club Monarcas Morelia and Salvadoran club Luis Angel Firpo, are "taking added steps to make sure there is no repeat" of the July 3 rioting around the Chivas de Guadalajara-Club America match. There will be "added security," bags will be "carefully checked" and fans will be scanned to keep out flares and fireworks. There "won't be dedicated entrances segregating fans of the two teams." Planet Futbol President Eduardo Beltramini said that there "was no discussion of canceling" the match (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 7/12).
