Argentine FA Will Continue To Ban Opposing Fans Through End Of Season
On Tuesday, the Argentine FA decided that Argentine football stadiums will not allow "opposing fans at games until the testing systems for fingerprints work at all stadiums," according to the EP. The decision followed a meeting between AFA President Julio Grondona and Argentine Security Secretary Sergio Berni. Berni "suggested that in addition to implementing the AFA Plus ticketing stadium, there should be infrastructure changes like an increase in the amount of video surveillance at stadiums." Berni added that the pressure to "let visiting fans enter stadiums has more to do with business than the fans." Berni: "Among everything else, we arrived at the conclusion that there was not one change. This will take time and patience. It was decided that there will be no visiting fans through the end of the year" (AS, 9/25).
