The rivalry between Tigres de la UANL and Monterrey is one of the most intense in all of Mexican soccer. The Classic Regio is one of the most passionate duels each semester, however, in recent editions the absence of people in the stadiums has taken away a bit of flavor from this rivalry. For the edition of Grita México 2021 there is good news in this regard.
The Clásico Regio number 126, which will be held on Sunday, September 19 as part of matchday 9 of the MX League, will have the presence of a greater number of attendees. The Nuevo León authorities allowed the capacity of the BBVA Stadium, also known as Gigante de Acero, to be up to 50% of its capacity due to the decrease in the case of COVID-19 in the entity.
Manuel de la O Cavazos, head of the State Health Secretariat, announced that the capacity of the Tigres, Monterrey and Sultanes de Monterrey stadiums may go from 30% to 50%.
“We increase the capacity in the stadiums because they are open air spaces, open and the epidemiological conditions of the health traffic light allow it. Today we have fewer infections, we have fewer hospitalized patients and at the same time we have more vaccinated people, so the decision was made in the Committee to increase the capacity in the stadiums “, indicated the expert.
At the beginning of day 8, Tigres and Monterrey seek to position themselves among the four best in the championship to directly access the league and avoid the playoffs. The cats are in the fourth position, while the Rayados are in sixth place.
