Fútbol Madness

Fútbol (soccer in North America and Football in the UK) in Buenos Aires is a unique, fascinating and exciting experience. The city is fútbol crazy, with 20 stadiums in the area. Passions run so high that it becomes almost a religion. While visiting the city I recommend you reserve one Sunday, or maybe sometimes Wednesday, to go watch a fútbol match. If possible go to a Boca or River match, or even better, Boca Juniors and River Plate head to head. They are the biggest teams in Argentina and...

Footie Time

... the world’s most popular sport, it’s hard to beat the Brazilians, on the field or in the stands. So what could be more Brazilian than going to a soccer match? And if you’re going to do it, you might as well do it right: go to Rio’s Maracanã stadium. When Maracanã was opened in 1950 to host the FIFA world cup, it was by far the largest stadium in the world; attendance at the final match was 200 000, the largest crowd to attend a soccer match in history.
