That he Monumental stadium from Colo Colo It needs improvements, many of them urgent, it is not a mystery. However, the suspension of football first due to the social outbreak and then due to the pandemic, which caused the activity to return without an audience, which produced a decrease in income, delayed all the Cacique’s plans.
Despite this, in Colo Colo they are already working on some remodeling. Thus, a new LED luminaire was inaugurated, the panel located above the Magallanes gallery was renewed and, according to its president, Edmundo Valladares, advance in other matters is expected when people can return to the stands.
“They are working on some aesthetic improvements to the Monumental. Ideally, the stadium is more friendly from its facades for when the columbians meet again. The accesses should be worked on in that return to make it as comfortable and dignified as possible. Everything that corresponds to the services must be in good condition, “said the chieftain of the Cacique in dialogue with DaleAlbo.
“There is a lot of talk about the visibility of the stadium, that is being analyzed. At the Monumental it has been a long time since not all tickets have been sold in certain places where it is simply not seen. It is very necessary to review that, even for an economic issue, to have a greater capacity for the parties, “he added.
Likewise, Valladares stressed that the leading role of the Social and Sports Club has been fundamental. “The fact that we can be empowered speaks of that these visions have more room. I fully trust that. In this sense, we have sought to empower the Real Estate of the stadium, which has its own resources and is ultimately the one that manages the venue. Blanco y Negro has its focus, so we want to take advantage of proposals from the Real Estate Agency to generate projects that seek better conditions, ”he said.
Finally, he made it clear that the full renovation will not be possible yet. “The times are not the same, the deadlines are not going to give. Obviously, the issue of improving the stadium is considered, but you have to see the issues to carry it out. So that this can be done, the best thing is to do the best previews, such as the bathrooms or the lighting that we fix. If you don’t have the minimum, you can’t think of bigger improvements ”, he concluded.
