Tricolor will have to pay R$5,000 to the FPF. The penalty is subject to appeal. The Sao Paulo Football Association relies on Articles 2 and 3 of its regulations, which require local clubs to provide sufficient space to hold press conferences:

  • Article 2: It is the host club's duty to provide the space and structure to organize and conduct interviews;
  • Article 3: If there is only one room or press space available in the stadium, the visiting team's interview will be conducted and, subsequently, the home team's interview will be conducted, unless prior agreement has been reached between the clubs, which must be communicated to the Football Association. At least 24 hours before the match.

The veto by São Paulo occurred because the Tricolor board realized that this would amount to a reciprocal treatment for what they receive at Allianz Parque when they play at their rival's stadium.

In 2022, for example, Palm trees A room attached to the Allianz mixed zone presented with problems with the sound system and without the possibility of Sao Paulo commentary on its background. Last year, an interview with Dorival Jr. had the same problem.

Football boys' locker room, without the right to properly fix the background with sponsors.

In effect, the journalists were left sitting on the floor and without the ideal sound system to do the work of all participants.

“São Paulo informed us, only after Sunday's game, that there would be no room for an interview with coach Abel Ferreira – a backdrop with the club's sponsors had already been installed in the press conference room in Morumbi.

Since the home team did not offer us any alternative (not even the mixed zone), the coach's press conference was cancelled. The argument used by São Paulo (“reciprocity”) does not match the truth, because Palm treesWhen he is in charge, he always makes space to meet the opposing coach.

“We have informed the Sao Paulo Football Federation of this hostile act and hope that the necessary action will be taken.”
