Rio to allow 7,800 fans to attend final


Rio de Janeiro, one of the Brazilian cities hardest hit by the coronaviru­s pandemic, on Friday gave the go-ahead for thousands of fans to attend Saturday’s Copa América final against Argentina at the Maracanã stadium.

The city has decided to allow a crowd of up to 7,800 people – 10 percent of the stadium’s full capacity of 78,000.

This would make it the first match in the 2021 Copa, South America’s largest internatio­nal football tournament, with fans in the stands.
