Palmeiras announced today (28) that he has secured the release of Allianz Parque in the Paulista Championship final to be held next Sunday (3), at 16 pm (GMT). The club has negotiated with construction company WTorre and will now be able to play the decision against Sao Paulo at home.
The announcement of the launch of the stadium was made by Palmeiras itself via social networks. The club claims that the deal was “carried out personally by President Leila Pereira, in contact with WTorre CEO Louis Davantel”.
Earlier, Leila Pereira was in a meeting with the president of Sao Paulo, Julio Casares, and the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, Reinaldo Carneiro Bastos, to determine the date and time of the crucial match. The two clubs remained stubborn at the time, with Alverde insisting on Saturday’s match (2), and Tricolor wanting the match on Sunday.. There was no agreement at the meeting, and the federation itself publicly stated that the details of the final would be decided later.
The dispute arose because Allianz Parki hosts Maroon 5 concert on Tuesday (5)Because of the stage equipment, the stadium was originally not available for Palmeiras two days before. It was this knot that forced the club to disengage with WTorre in order to decide the title at home.
The same official note announcing the launch of the stadium has a bite from Palmeiras in Sao Paulo. “We can no longer accept that our leaders continue to adopt individualistic positions,” says Leila Pereira, in a veiled reference to Casares (see full text below).
With the issue resolved, Sao Paulo and Palmeiras now turn their attention to the stadium, where they will face each other in the Paulistao final first leg at 21:40 (GMT) on Wednesday (30), in Morumbi. The second match, which was confirmed at Allianz Parque, was scheduled for 4pm on Sunday (3).
