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.
