The rear areas where the goals are located have good terrain where they can be installed perfectly and with them we would add 2,000 people for each bleacher. We expect a capacity of 13,000 people in the stadium,” Pedro told the radio program Dos Canchas of Radio Cadenas Voces about the number of fans expected.
