Caps and belts banned from Libertadores final
Football fans attending next weekend’s Copa Libertadores final in Peru will be banned from entering the stadium with caps, sunglasses or belts, and may even have to take breathalyzer tests. The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) published the stringent regulations on Friday, just eight days before Flamengo take on River Plate in the final at Lima’s Estadio Monumental. In addition to random breathalyzer tests, CONMEBOL said: “There will be no entry allowed to people with alcoholic drinks, drugs, psychotropic substances, stimulants, and there will also be no access with caps, sunglasses and chains/belts”. The final between two of the biggest teams in South America was moved to Peru earlier this month after weeks of unrest in the Chilean capital of Santiago, where it was scheduled to take place.
