victorsra wrote:Barra Funda is a neighbourhood in São Paulo city. Very central. Great location. This is Nacional's stadium, a small professional historical soccer club (playing now São Paulo's 2nd division, which we could call 5th level of Brazilian soccer). They rent their stadium a lot for junior and amateur soccer and the grass condition has always been a problem. It can't host night matches too. I love the stadium because it is basically 10min walking from my home :lol:

But seriously, this is the perfect stadium for Tupis, if renovation works were made. Capacity for about 10.000 fans.

Last time Tupis played there; 2012 against Paraguay, with about 7.000 people (record attendance that time):

Brazil vs Portugal will be 2:20 PM (6:30 Lisbon time).


Gotta love the classic “fence with barbed wire” look that South American soccer stadiums go for. Almost as good as the “giant moat around the field.”

It is a shame but if the Soccer administrators and the club owners don´t do their jobs, the fences will be there for a long time. They do not give attention to proper control of assistants in order to avoid violence.

In Chile, the clubs prefer to make money through TV transmission than the sale of tickets. Families do not go to the matches, only enfevered fans often misoriented and ready to violent actions. Without fences we would not have football games.

To all the Portuguese Friends :

The change of venue for the match between Chile and Portugal it was logical in order to protect the Safety of players, officials and assitants.

Valparaiso is a much smaller city than Santiago, so the "non pacific" demonstrations in clue areas of the city can block easily the transit and the normal life. Santiago is a 6 millions inhabitants city, the stadium "San Carlos" is located in a wealthy area very far from the places where the violent demonstrations are still taking place. The highways around the airport are from there to the area of SAn Carlos are well secured so the portuguese delegation will not have troubles. I hope they enjoy a good sport experience and a warm reception in Chile.

Two things relating to Portuguese rugby

There is now an online store for merchandise and you can also buy tickers for Portugal x Georgia. Hopefully they roll this out to be able to buy tickets for all home games.... https://loja.fpr.pt/loja?fbclid=IwAR1RGRlmpFsJNTlaZmg_xBhgpQM6-JhjWX4rDuTL2enevsvfzpAPPyQWvvk

Jose Lima has served his ban and I believe is back with Carcossonne
