Many football teams want to take as many advantages as possible when playing their home games in order to obtain better results. The popular betting sites in Pakistan – 1xBet offer excellent wagering opportunities on many football matches from many places around the world.
Some teams might want to move their games to places that are too hot, too cold, or even located at higher altitudes. The latter has been quite a controversial topic. The team that regularly plays important competitions, such as the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, from a high-altitude location is Bolivia. All the matches of this team are available to wager on the popular 1xBet Pakistan betting sites, which offers great events to play in and win.
Enforcing the ban
Due to health concerns cited by many players, coaches, and even doctors concerning high-altitude football, FIFA banned it from May 2007. The www.1xbet.pk/line/ platform features all the matches from the most difficult venues across the world.
Specifically, the organization decided to forbid any competitive match to be played at an altitude of 2,500 meters or more. This immediately affected three South American teams, which were:
- and Ecuador.
All of them regularly hosted their home matches in their capital cities, which are La Paz, Bogota and Quito respectively. Some exciting football matches are played in those places, and they are always featured at the 1xBet website. The organizations responsible for football in those countries were furious, and immediately asked for this ban to be lifted. Eventually they succeeded, after this ban was officially lifted one year after its introduction.
The cause that triggered the ban
While high-altitude football has always been controversial, there was a particular event that triggered the aforementioned ban. This was when Brazilian team Flamengo threatened to boycott matches of this kind. The 1xbet.pk/mobile website has all the matches of this and all the other Brazilian football squads. The reason for that was that many of their players needed to use bottled oxygen after a match played in La Paz, the capital of Bolivia.
This event was part of the Copa Libertadores, and it took place on the 26th of January 2012. The Brazilians faced Bolivian team Real Potosí, and the Bolivians won 2-1 after goals from Claudio Centurión and Edgardo Brittes. Flamengo’s goal came from Luiz Antonio. The entire Copa Libertadores is featured at the 1xBet website, where punters can wager on all its matches.
