Football fans attending next weekend's Copa Libertadores final in Peru will be banned from entering the stadium with caps, sunglasses or belts, and may also have to take breathalyzer tests before entry. The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) published the stringent regulations on Friday, just eight days before Flamengo take on River Plate in the final at Lima's Monumental stadium.

"The National Police of Peru will have breathylisers to randomly test people who may be presumed to be under the influence of alcohol and they will be denied entry if the result is positive," part of the CONMEBOL statement said. "In addition, there will be no entry allowed to people with alcoholic drinks, drugs, psychotropic substances, stimulants, and there will also be no access with caps, sun glasses and chains/belts."

Ticker tape, balloons, and flags measuring a maximum of 2 metre by 1 metre will be allowed into the stadium, the statement said, stressing the regulations were part of Peruvian law. The eagerly awaited final between two of the biggest teams in South America was moved to Peru earlier this month after weeks of unrest in the Chilean capital of Santiago, where it was scheduled to take place.

This year's decider is the first to take place on a one-off basis at a neutral venue after six decades of home-and-away finals in South America's equivalent of the Champions League. The second leg of last year's final between River Plate and Boca Juniors was played in Madrid after River fans attacked the Boca bus as it approached the stadium, smashing the windows and injuring some of the players inside.
