“The sale is slow, because many people here do not know how to buy through the digital ticket. We hope to sell all the tickets between now and Sunday. The organization costs increased a lot, both due to the pandemic, and because in the games against Alajuelense and Saprissa they ask us for double security and everything. Likewise, the tickets are for those who like to come, whether they are locals or visitors ”, explained Barrantes.

For this duel, handy followers organize transfers and there is great expectation on social networks.
