O Palm trees asked to carry out training at Allianz Parque to test the lawn, which will undergo maintenance in the coming days by the Soccer Grassa company chosen by Real Arenas, stadium administrator. The information was brought by “Uol” and confirmed by ESPN this Saturday (3).
The report found that the activity does not have a date to take place, as the place will still host events in the coming days and has not even started maintenance. O Allianz Parque was closed by the São Paulo Football Federation following a request from Palmeiras due to the situation on the pitch..
According to information published by The globe Last week, Real Arenas, the company responsible for managing the stadium, will replace the thermoplastic compound, which was melting and sticking to the soles of athletes’ boots, with organic cork material.
A ESPN found that, in addition to changing the compost, the Allianz Parque lawn will also undergo a deep cleaning process, as it still contains debris from previous events. The situation even led to public complaints from coach Abel Ferreira, in 2023.
From October to date, 27 major shows have been held at the venue, as well as smaller events, something that has made it impossible for maintenance work to be carried out correctly. It is also worth highlighting that the “war” between Palmeiras and WTorre/Real Arenas have an impact on the working relationship between them.
In January of this year, the president Leila Pereira said that WTorre would hand over the “Coliseu” to Palmeiras at the end of the 30-year contract, referring to the lack of maintenance on site. A ESPN investigated some existing problems at the stadium, which caused inconvenience and discomfort to the public in recent months.
After all the maintenance on the field, Palmeiras will carry out test training on site. However, the club’s approval will not determine the use of the stadium, which will need to undergo an investigation by the São Paulo Football Federation to finally be released for the rounds of the Paulista championship.
Due to the closure of the venue, Palmeiras will send its duels against Ituano (08/02) and Corinthians (18/02), at Arena Barueri. The tendency is for Verdão to only return to Allianz Parque on February 24th, at 6pm, when it will receive the Mirassol.
