Stadium to see first game with March inauguration

The new stadium being built by the People’s Republic of China in exchange for Costa Rica’s diplomatic support will be inaugurated in March with a game between the national team and that of Argentina, officials have announced.

There also is a possibility that a top team from China might visit and play a game a short time later.

The $85 million stadium is in Parque la Sabana.

There also are reports that Colombian singer Shakira will give a musical performance sometime in April.

Costa Rica dumped Taiwan in favor of diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic in 2007.
