City of Buenos Aires, August 18, 2011
The Argentine Football Association (AFA) decided to suspend for five games the Monumental Stadium for the damage caused by River Plate’s fans at the match against Belgrano de Cordoba for the promotion.
River finally paid the consequences of the vandalism caused by some fans after the meeting, in which the team was relegated to the B Nacional Tournament.
The ”Millionaire” will not be able to play 5 games in their stadium, and the first two of them shall be with no audience and the other three only with the presence of partners, wherever it is.
The club’s leaders would go for Huracan’s Stadium, in which the team would dispute the encounters of the third (with Sportivo Desamparados), the fifth (Defensa y Justicia), the seventh (Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata) the ninth (Atlanta) and the eleventh games (Adolsivi de Mar del Plata).
