World Cup

Brazil scraps preparations for a fan-friendly match against Argentina.

After six games, Brazil leads the South American qualification group by six points over Argentina. The top four teams will be automatically qualified for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Due to a lack of time to prepare, Brazilian officials have scrapped plans to allow a crowd of 12,000 to watch Sunday’s World Cup qualifier against Argentina.

The CBF had stated that a crowd of 12 000 would be the first step toward stadiums reopening in Brazil after nearly a year and a half of games played without spectators because to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Instead, just 1500 invited guests will be permitted inside the 48 234-seat Neo Quimica Arena, which is home to Sao Paulo team Corinthians.

Following discussions with local health experts, it was determined that there was insufficient time to organize ticket sales and regulate the Covid-19 tests that fans would be required to do prior to entry, according to the CBF.

The highly anticipated match between the South American titans is the second of three World Cup qualifiers taking place between September 2 and 9. On Thursday, Brazil will face Chile, and on September 9, they will face Argentina.

After six games, Brazil leads the South American qualification group by six points over Argentina. The top four teams will be automatically qualified for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
