The rain has put a damper on the pre-party that had been expected outside the National Stadium. Many see it, however, as good news, for it rains in the afternoon unlikely it will at night.
The Policia de Transito has already begun restricting traffic in the area of La Sabana. German Marín, director of the traffic police, says that a total closure of the north-south route in front of the stadium will be closed to all vehicular traffic starting at 6pm. This to allow the arrival of the teams without incident and “important” dignitaries that will be attending the game.
Around the stadium, Marín says the partial closures will depend on traffic conditions.
The gates to the stadium open at 5pm. But it won’t be until 8pm when La Sele and the US team take to the field for 90 minutes of play.
