Venue: Coliseo Roberto Clemente
Roberto Clemente Coliseum is a sports and concert arena located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was, for many years, Puerto Rico's largest indoor event facility, and it continues being one of the largest. The Coliseum is named after baseball hall of famer Roberto Clemente, who died in a plane crash off Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Carolina in 1972, while flying with relief articles to be given to victims of the Nicaragua earthquake. Construction of the facility, which began in the early 1970s, was finished in January 1973 and inaugurated in February of that year by the Fania All-Stars. The coliseum has played host to a variety of events, including world championship boxing and basketball, business expos and concerts.
