METROPOLITAN STADIUM BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela




The Estadio Metropolitano de Fútbol de Lara is a soccer stadium located in the heart of the city of Barquisimeto, Venezuela, home ground of Guaros de Lara FC. It was built by the Venezuelan company Jantesa, and it is one of the nine venues for the Copa America 2007. It has a capacity of 40,312, it has a field of 110 x 70 m, it has Aloha Seashore Paspalum grass, it has a parking lot for 4,000 vehicles, elevators, 4 locker rooms, an anti-doping room, a medical room, referee room and two gigantic screens, 24 cabins for the press and a VIP area.

Lara F.C. opened Venezuela to many opportunities by playing in the Copa Libertadores in 1969. In 2005, the CONMEBOL chose the Copa America 2007 venues; in those selected Barquisimeto was not one of the venues selected. In 2006 the CONMEBOL decided to add Barquisimeto as a venue for the Copa America 2007 in honor of Lara FC.

The sport is called football, and to the people who call it soccer, get over it because this sport has only one name and will always have one name.

Apparently you need a history lesson.

Well this brand has taken the name in most of the world, but it certainly hasn't always, and we have the British to thank for any confusion. Rugby used to be known as football too. In the late 1700 and early 1800s any number of sports played on foot were known as football, in difference to sport on horseback or Cricket. What are know known as Football/Soccer and Rugby became quite popular and in order to avoid confusion were given nicknames. The soc in association lead to those playing the game to be called "Soccers" as opposed to "Ruggers" playing League or Union.

In Countries where rugby and the rugbyesque games that developed there from became the dominant sport are known as Football (Aussie rules, American, Canadian rules) andfor the most part kept calling Association Football Soccer. Where Association won it its obviously the colloquial Football.

As far as this forum goes I for one am going to keep using the term by the specific region; US, Canadian, Australian threads as there specific football, vs football as in association football for Europe, South America, Africa, Asia.

It's official name is association football which, like Rugby football, is shortened to football and rugby respectively. Futbol and futball are just translations yes?

The only exception you have to get used to is from Americans and Canadians who call it soccer. No-one likes it, but that's life - just live with it NMAISTER007 :lol:.
