More than 30,000 Peruvian fans will head to Rio de Janeiro to support their national soccer team in the Copa America final against Brazil
, the National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur) estimated on Friday.
"They will join the 25,000 Peruvians that have descended on that country over the past weeks to attend this sporting event at the mystic Maracana Stadium," he said.
"Unfortunately, there are only two daily flights operating on this route, and they are fully booked, which would limit the arrival of more Peruvians," he warned.
In addition to them, Brazil is expected to receive Peruvian nationals residing in Argentina, Bolivia, and Uruguay.
However, Canales explained the Copa America
final tickets are almost sold out.
"Only 5% of tickets are available for purchase, as well as the resale ones," he stated.
