The four venues that Chile will apply to the 2030 World Cup: they will expand the stadiums with mechanical structures

After officially announce the joint candidacy of Chile with Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay to host the World Cup 2030began to take colors and form the idea, where the countries are fine-tuning the details to have the best proposal before the Fifa.

It’s always important to know what venues might be available, as happened that day when FIFA has determined the cities that will host the matches of the 2026 World Cupwhich will be led by Canada, the United States and Mexico.

Given the limitations that have always been established for the World Cup, redoubts that can accommodate more than 40,000 spectators are needed, so in the country the closest thing they have is the National Stadium, the Monumental Stadium and in the Ester Roa Rebolledo regions of Concepcion.

According to figures from the Safe Stadium, the Ñuñoa Coliseum has a capacity of 46,190 spectators, far from the 70,000 with which it was built in 1937 and more than what had been established for the 1962 World Cup, when it exceeded the 80,000 people.

Obviously, this will be the main Chilean map in this process, where a remodel will have to be done, which has been crying out for many years, to leave the redoubt as the great stadium for all Chileans.

The monumental David Arellano stadium is another of the alternatives that the national option manages, with 43,667 people, it is the second proposal to take into account for a remodeling of a coherent redoubt.

In the regions, the Mayor Ester Roa Rebolledo stadium in the city of Concepción is one of the most viable alternatives, although it is far from the minimum required: Mayor Ester Roa Rebolledo, with 29,591 people.

The Calvo and Bascuñán Regional in the city of Antofagasta, which although like Ester Roa will require significant remodeling, is an option in the north of the country, with a capacity of 20,690 people.

A step back, but with the capacity to establish a project, is Valparaíso, where the Elías Figueroa stadium has a capacity of 20,575 people, in addition to Sausalito de Viña del Mar, who was already a Copa del Mar player. world in 1962, with 23,423 spectators.

The work

It was in 2019 that Chile joined the candidacy of Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, presenting their redoubts that could be seen in the Copa América 2015. For this reason, the idea was to use redoubts, with relevant remodeling.

“Antofagasta, Valparaíso, Santiago and Concepción have the best combination of all the elements that must be taken into account,” said former sports minister Pauline Kantor.

“I think you have to work on the stadiums that are already built, especially because they have the FIFA standard, because they are new. What they obviously don’t have is the capacity, and today we have to think about how increasing capacity and technology are entirely in our favour, we have already seen the meccano stadiums in Russia”, specified the minister on this occasion, where she also assured that “the costs are much lower and then we don’t stay with the white elephant.”

In this sense, it was also open to a major remodeling of the Ñuñoa redoubt or the search for a new stadium for the country, with the idea of ​​having the mission of being able to host a semi-final of the FIFA Cup. world, where a minimum of 60,000 spectators are requested.

“It would only be a stadium with that capacity, which is needed for a semi-final, but that’s one of the issues we have to assess, what’s happening with the national stadium. There we will assess all the alternatives, today it’s a blank sheet where we have to assess whether it can be remodeled, starting from scratch or looking for another land where to build a stadium for 60,000 spectators, ”he explains.
