When do you want to go?
It has been nearly two weeks since the end of the Copa Libertadores final and there are still a lot of questions unanswered about the game’s outcome.
But a few of the more popular questions remain: How will we know if there is a winner?
Will there be a penalty shootout?
Can we expect the winner to be one of the two finalists?
Will the final be played on grass or turf?
And then there’s the one about the stadium.
The final will take place on the beautiful Estadio Nacional, which will host the final in the summer of 2019, but the venue’s future remains uncertain.
The tournament will be played at the Estadío Naciana, a 20,000-seat stadium built in 2005, but its existence was not officially announced until March 2019.
It was later decided that the stadium would not be able to host the tournament because of a construction contract, but that has since been cancelled.
The new venue is being planned by the local government, which is already facing problems from the earthquake in Chile.
“It will be a long time before we know what the venue will look like,” said Guillermo Salas, the city’s secretary for infrastructure, when we asked him about the venue.
“We don’t know the exact design, but we will have a working concept when the contract is signed.”
Salas said that the city of Santiago, which owns the stadium, was negotiating with the stadium’s owner, which has not yet agreed to a new agreement.
The new venue will have capacity for 100,000, but it is unclear how many seats it will hold, given that it was built in such a short time.
The stadium was also built with little in the way of a capacity for the final.
The Copa Sudamericana, which was supposed to be played in 2019, will take up just over half that amount.
As for the shootout, the final will be decided by a penalty kick shootout, but there are several questions surrounding how many players will be involved in the final, which means that a tie is likely.
The winner will be determined by the number of points they earn in the group stage.
“If we do not have a winner, it would mean that the last four groups are decided by penalty kicks,” Salas said.
“This is not the ideal way to decide the winner.
That is the reason why the tournament is being held in 2018.”
What happens if there’s no winner?
“In a shootout, you have to give a penalty to whoever scores the most points,” Salinas said.
The last time the tournament was played on turf was in 2009, but no winner was ever declared.
The last time it was played in a football stadium was in 2013, when a game was played between Uruguay and Colombia.
That game ended in a 2-2 draw.
