NO Coins. NO Glass. NO Metal. NO Firearms. NO Explosives. NO Drugs. Are part of the controls for Friday!
The Fuerza Publica (police) are planning extreme security measures for fans entering the National Stadium Friday, for the 8pm World Cup qualifying soccer game between Costa Rica and the United States.
Juan José Andrade, the director of the national police force, said that some 400 officers will be involved in the security detail at the stadium and called on fans to “maintain a respectful attitude“.
Any type of weapon, fireworks, glass or metal – including coins – will not be permitted inside the stadium, according to Andrade.
The police chief said it is recommendable not to take valuables like rings, watches, gold chains, etc. And in addition, the canine unit will be on patrol to detect drugs and explosives.
Police will begin their work at the stadium in the morning.
It is best to avoid the La Sabana an surrounding areas on Friday, especially as the day wears on and closer to game time.
