FIFA ‘reevaluating’ Brazilian version of vuvuzela

SAO PAULO (AP) — The days of the caxirola, Brazil’s version of the vuvuzela, may be over even before the Confederations Cup begins in June.

FIFA and the local 2014 World Cup organizing committee said Friday they are reconsidering whether to allow fans to use the maraca-like instrument during the warm-up tournament. The decision came after police in northeastern Brazil banned the instruments from football stadiums because of security concerns.

It is the second World Cup in a row there has been a controversy involving local instruments used by fan.

Throughout the 2010 event in South Africa there was debate about the use of vuvuzelas — plastic horns which created a din that drowned out all other crowd noise.

The caxirolas will not be allowed at the Arena Fonte Nova this weekend in the final of the Bahia state final because fans upset about their team’s loss last month threw the green-and-yellow objects onto the pitch, forcing the match to be briefly interrupted.
