CALI, Colombia - A second Colombian city has banned fans from taking vuvuzelas to Under-20 World Cup matches after residents complained of the noisemakers.

A day after Pereira city officials prohibited the vuvuzelas, Cali officials did the same on Sunday after residents living near the Pascual Guerrero stadium protested.

Pereira is set to host Cameroon and Mexico on Tuesday, followed by a quarterfinal and a semifinal. Cali hosts Portugal and Guatemala on Tuesday and a quarterfinal.

Officials conducted a study to establish the noise level made by the vuvuzelas and concluded they were a nuisance.

The vuvuzelas were made infamous at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and made a comeback at the tournament in Colombia.
