A bomb threat caused police and stadium officials to temporarily remove all fans and personnel from Huracán's stadium ahead of its Sunday night clash with River Plate.
A bomb squad from the federal police eventually cleared the stadium, the fans and clubs re-entered, and the game kicked off with a 75-minute delay.
"Because of a bomb threat, the Security Committee has ordered a precautionary evacuation of the Huracán stadium." the official River Plate Twitter account said at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Neither team had entered the stadium when the bomb threat was announced. Both team buses idled a few blocks away from the stadium, and the team of referees sheltered in a police squad car. Crowds of fans milled about in the street, awaiting the all-clear.
The threat originated with three 911 calls coming from somewhere in Buenos Aires Province, according to Clarín.
Huracán defeated River Plate, 1-0.
