WTorre also requested the effect of the suspension to allow shows already scheduled at Allianz Parque.

The management of Subprefectures, which is responsible for Psiu, suggested in an internal opinion that the administrative closure should be maintained, but allowed football matches to take place. The municipal prosecutor’s office has recommended granting a partial reopening, in order to maintain the game’s calendar.

Parallel to this week’s decisions, there is a civil investigation into the prosecutor’s office into the noise level in the vicinity of Allianz Park. According to the Prosecutor’s Office, a meeting is scheduled between the IPT (Institute of Technology Research) and the stadium technicians to discuss the first steps of the Final Conduct Modification Term (TAC).
