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.
