The toll of the accidents that occurred near the Funes d San Luis stadium, on the occasion of the 16 / i final match of the Argentine Cup between Independiente Rivadavia and Velez, is one dead and 22 injured. It all started when groups of Independiente ‘barras bravas’ (ultras), who arrived late at the stadium, crossed paths with law enforcement agencies and there were clashes, while many of these fans tried to enter the stadium despite being without a ticket. One of them, a 26-year-old man whose personal details were not provided, died of a heart attack while attempting to ‘jump’ a turnstile. Any attempt to revive him is useless. It is not the first time, there are two precedents from 2020 to today, that the supporters of the Independiente Rivadavia create problems of public order which lead to deaths.
