“STONE” closed: Deportivo Cali and America’s fans are conducting searches for entrances to the stadiums.

In Cali, many fans still remember afternoons or nights when they could calmly go to the stadiums to watch a good soccer game of either América or Deportivo Cali, but unfortunately that culture has been lost for a long time.

For several years now, those in charge of the safety of the spectators, either at the Paschal Guerrero Stadium or at the Cali Stadium in Palmaseca, have limited the entrance of visiting fans with their badges and colors, to avoid inconvenience before and after the games.

Due to these restrictions, a fan coming from abroad or a visitor to the Valle del Cauca classic, must participate without clothing or objects related to their team, and for greater security, clothing of the same color as the local team.

But despite all this, violence against visiting fans continues to happen here in Cali, and the authorities have long since gotten out of hand.

The most recent thing is that the barra bravas and some so-called fans, both outside and inside the sports venues, are required or “stones” that they assume to frighten, beat and rob the visitors, as it happens in some situations. Stadium Cali in the final classic.

For fans who go to the stage in peace, these events are unfortunate and it is unheard of that they will continue to happen in the middle of 2023, while driving families away from sporting events.

A completely different picture from what happened in other stadiums in the country, where, for example, Bogotá and Medellín gave an example that stands in the same stadium without the division of two teams of teams in the same stand and the bars coexist in the same state. enjoying football in peace.

Last Thursday, Santiago Cruz, a fan of América, was harassed by another “fan” because he did not wear a red shirt for the game against Junior on the 7th: “I went to the stadium with my wife, I had a white shirt with red stripes, because I came from work, I didn’t have time to change and I didn’t think it was important.
Entering the stadium from the west, a man approached me from the evening and began to insult me ​​and threaten him.

Returning to the classic order, in Cali the person in charge of logistics and security, Jacobo Risueño, does not ignore the existing problems and events: “Cali’s social context is very difficult, it is not a secret to anyone, but; it has a collective impact of passengers and weapons. We cannot kill and attack each other because It is a trigger.

But there are two pressing reasons why the city is not allowed to enter the bars to visit Pascual and Palmaseca.

The first is that both America and Deportivo Cali have established a location in the north for families; Therefore, they cannot visit the bar in that area of ​​the stadium.

The second thing is that, in order to receive players from a foreign group, there is a need for a significant deployment of the National Police to take care of them.

Cali is one of the most violent cities in the country, which is why the authorities prefer to fortify the places of support, which this county needs to be swamped by troops.

He fights and dies
In the early hours of Sunday before the classic Valle del Cauca, Santiago Vinasco, a fan of América de Cali, was murdered by suspected supporters of Deportivo Cali, in the neighborhood of San Francisco de Cali.

the young man managed to be transferred to the hospital of San Juan de Dios by the police patrol, but he died minutes later.

Another was greatly injured by the same things in the middle of the battle.

Hours later, two men were arrested while riding a motorcycle through the La Alianza neighborhood in Cali.

It is not the first time that these fanciful practices have been carried out in sports venues; they are currently taking place in most stadiums in the country.

According to the supporters of the two teams in the city, this happens because of the lack of care of the authorities so that the visitors have access and organized movement.

In Cali, only visiting Conmebol fans are allowed to enter tournaments.
