Doubts about prices

“Beloved, do not be so” crocreta “between 60 and 80 thousand brasucas that you are scamming. Did you mistake your perfume? With the value of the tickets and the fanfare of the hotels and aindamais hopefully if they come 20 or 30 thousand that would already be a good figure also you forgot the capacity of 60% max. 42 thousand ”, said one of the responses to the interview on Twitter.

There is a doubt, disseminated through social networks, regarding attendance at the finals after the ticket prices.

Palmeiras’ own midfielder, Verdão Dudu, questioned on Tuesday a Conmebol publication (which is no longer available) in which ticket prices were revealed. “Admission is very expensive, it has to be cheaper,” said the Brazilian.

Even, both Palmeiras and Flamengo fan clubs were upset by the prices on social media. Tickets for the Copa Libertadores start at 200 dollars and go up to 650. The cheapest ticket, due to the depreciation suffered by the Brazilian real against the dollar, is equivalent to a monthly minimum wage in that country.

“It is inadmissible that a South American tournament, with countries with low purchasing power, third world countries, where hunger reigns, have that cost for the fan ”, published the Green Spot of Sao Paulo (fans of Palmeiras), in his account on Instagram.

On the other hand, Raça Rubro-negra (a fan of Flamengo) published a statement on Twitter that says, “in a further step towards permanent exclusion of fans from South American courts, the entity stipulates prices that go beyond those established in the world, even in the main European competition “.

In addition to the cost of the tickets, those who travel to see the finals must add the cost of transportation, lodging and food. Currently, the prices of apartment rentals in Montevideo, for that weekend, go from $ 900 to $ 5,000 for two days.
