Argentine FA Lifts Restrictions That Allowed Only Season-Ticket Holders To Attend Games
The Argentine FA "will allow non-season-ticket holders to attend upcoming football games, but it will continue to prevent visiting fans from attending," according to CLARIN. Starting on the third matchday of the season, clubs at all levels of Argentine football will be able to sell tickets to fans who are not season-ticket holders. The Argentine FA approved this decision late Monday night. The "measure preventing fans without season tickets from attending the first two matchdays had been taken by the AFA and government security organizations to prevent violence." This "was only carried out for two matchdays." AFA VP Luis Segura said, "They are going to once again sell tickets to the local public. Like anything that happens in society, what can put an end to the violence is the people. If there are no problems, visiting fans will also be able to return" (CLARIN, 8/6).
