Police on alert for tonight’s soccer match

Two leading soccer teams play a championship match tonight, and the Feurza Pública is fielding 204 officers to back up 175 private security guards at the Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto in Alajuela.

The two teams are Liga Deportiva Alajuelense y Club Sport Herediano.

Police have been frisking spectators as they enter the stadiums in an effort to reduce the violence that has taken place at previous games. Both teams have large groups of loyal followers.
