Fluminense x Fortaleza: with promotional price in Covid-19 test, Laranjeiras has a long line day | Rio de Janeiro

O Fluminense and “Inside Diagnostics”, a partner of the club, offered a promotional price for club members to test Covid-19 in Laranjeiras for this Wednesday’s game, against Fortaleza. After buying a ticket for the match, fans pay R$50 to take the antigen test and, if negative, they are able to remove the bracelet that will give access to Maracanã. The first day of discount, however, caused a long line at headquarters from early morning until mid-afternoon.

Photos and reports of waiting for two hours or more circulated on social networks, which generated complaints and criticism from internet users due to the crowding.

When consulted, Fluminense informed that the demand of fans was much greater in the morning, while in the afternoon there were no queues. The club added that it is looking for a way to speed up the process. The promotional price for members continues this Wednesday in Laranjeiras, from 8 am to 5 pm. Ticket sales end at 1pm. O ge found that, until this Tuesday, about 2,500 tickets had been sold.

Check out Fluminense’s position:

“Fluminense is following all the protocols required by the health authorities to carry out the test event. The club is working, together with the partner laboratory, to solve the queuing issues verified in the morning, in Laranjeiras, on this first day of operation , and speed up the results of the exams”.

The protocol’s bureaucracy was also the target of criticism. To remove the bracelet that entitles entry to Maracanã, the fan had to present printed forms: the ticket purchase voucher, proof of vaccination and the negative result of the Covid test. Some fans were taken by surprise with the obligation to print all documents. The need, however, had been informed by the club since the announcement of the ticket sales scheme.

The presentation of the printed result was a requirement of the city hall protocol. Fans of other clubs in Rio de Janeiro have also gone through similar needs to go to the games recently.

Several fans who went to Laranjeiras decided to remain at the site awaiting the test result before picking up the Maracanã access bracelet. In some cases, however, the result took hours to come out. With the need for printing to remove the bracelet, club security guided the trip to a nearby lottery. The club provided another six points in the city for the bracelet to be picked up (see list below). Some require printed documents, others accept digital version checking.

This will be Fluminense’s first game with open gates since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Tricolor uses the game as a test event. The load is 20 thousand tickets, and the sale is done only through the internet. Prices range from R$80 to R$300.

Only those who are up to date with the vaccine cycle can go to the game. Upon making the purchase, this supporter will receive a voucher and must undergo an antigen test in accredited laboratories. If the Covid-19 test is negative, he will present the ticket and exam at the pick-up points to earn a bracelet that will give him access to the stadium. If it is positive, the club will refund the ticket price, but it will not be possible to recover the money spent on the exam.

Note: to be up to date with the vaccine cycle, you must have taken the first, second or third dose according to the age in your municipality, or who are not yet old enough to be vaccinated, such as children under 12 years of age.
