DAP’s BAE will be flying the party to Mendoza DAP’s BAE will be flying the party to Mendoza

Early Friday morning a DAP aircraft with over fifty passengers left Punta Arenas, extreme south of Chile, on a chartered flight for Santiago and then Mendoza, Argentina to be present at this evening’s Chile-Uruguay match for the Copa America.

From Santiago and with another forty Chilean fans the BAE DAP aircraft will climb the Andes and arrive at midday in Mendoza (lunch included) with ample time for the match that begins at 18:15 Chilean time in the Malvinas Argentinas Stadium.

The travellers will have the bonus of a second match at 20:45 in the same stadium with the match between the national teams of Mexico and Peru. Mexico was defeated by Chile in the first round, 3-2, and Peru and Uruguay just managed a 1-1 score.

Uruguay will be playing with its three world stars and strikers, Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez and Cavani.

Following the two matches the group will be returning on the same night with the chartered DAP aircraft. The trip organized by DAP includes all services and transport in Mendoza. The only requisite for joining the party are the ID document and lots of enthusiasm in support of “La Roja”, the colour of the Chilean national team.

    It shows how whipping up hatred, led by the President, can backfire. Argentina is the host, right? So their behaviour will be judged more harshly than any other country. This is not impressive behaviour from the Argentine children.

    I also read that the final may not be held in BsAs national stadium because of the damage caused by the River Plate fans. There are very real concerns that it cannot be reapired in time to meet the standards required to hold the final.

    What a stupid comment Elaine just read the link from Rob the brutish.

    “Un periodista de Televisión Nacional de Chile que cubría el apoyo de los trasandinos a su equipo comentó a Canal 7 los disturbios se habrían producido por el accionar de un movilero de CQC Chile que, con la irreverencia y picardía acostumbradas en el estilo de del programa, habría fogoneado con los sincoleros un altercado entre ambas partes, la chispa que luego encendió los enfrentamientos”
