Argentina and Messi world champions they provoke an overflowing revolution in all senses. The expectation of the fans is impressive, they do not want to miss the first game after the consecration in the World Cup in Qatar. But the interest of the journalistic media is also striking. What’s more: to accredit all the press that made a request, the AFA would need a Monumental and a half only for journalists.
The data was revealed by the press officer of the AFA and the Selection, Nicholas Novello, who published on his personal Twitter account: “Press credentials requested for Argentina-Panama: 131,537. Monumental stadium capacity: 83,214. We should have almost a stadium and a half just for journalists.” The data is hyper eloquent.
50,000 Argentines have already been calculated in Qatar on the day of the final with France. Already estimated 5 million Argentines in the streets of Buenos Aires and surroundings to accompany the frustrated walk of the world champions. An excessive party is coming now at the Monumental stadium.
Beyond the journalists, there is also the light blue and white fever that invades the fans. Everyone asks for a ticket, everyone wants to know when they start selling. The requests in the AFA and in the leaders of the Association are impossible to satisfy.
This Wednesday the details of the sale of seats for the game on Thursday, March 23 between Argentina-Panamaan outlet that would be developed online and that will surely collapse.
The Monumental has just been remodeled and expanded its capacity to 83,214 spectators. It looks beautiful, giant. However, it will not be enough to cover such a demand from fans or journalists.
