Probably the Greatest Futsal Match in History !
ATLETICO / PAX DE MINAS vs.
RIO DE JANEIRO / MIECIMO
IV LIGA FUTSAL
FINAL (2nd match)
Belo Horizonte, MG - Brasil
08 August, 1999
That's a little bit complicated. The first numbers of spectators divulgated was 23:813 people.
Next day, ADEMG (Administrator of Stadiums in Minas Gerais) divulgated 25.677.
They said it was because as the gimnasium was superovercrowded,
Minas Gerais Militar Police had to open the gates to let some people get out.
But the opposite happened and more people (who were outside with their tickets) entered.
And finally, they recounted the tickets and got : 25.713 people.
The truth is that:
1- MG Police adviced Atletico to sell just 18.500 tickets and distribute 1000 vip tickets.
2- But Atletico didn't respect that and ordered to make much more tickets and sold them.
They didn't notice that many people could be outside or it could cause a tragedy.
3- But by the grace of God no accidents happened and so the number of spectators became officially 25.713.
