Q COSTA RICA – The General Directorate of Taxation of the Ministry of Finance shut down the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium, slapping Deportivo Saprissa S.A.D. with a business closure penalty for a 10-day period.

The debt in question is for the unpaid Withholding Tax from 2013 and 2014.

Juan Carlos Rojas, president of Saprissa, took to Twitter to clear up the news about the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium being closed down by the Ministry of Finance. He wanted to make it clear that they have all their taxes up to date and don’t owe anything – the closure was for a later payment 10 years ago.


Deportivo Saprissa is a sports club based in San Juan de Tibás, San José, and their home games are held at the Estadio Ricardo Saprissa, or “La Cueva” (The Cave), named after one of the founders, Ricardo Saprissa.
