La Bombonera Stadium

Top choice stadium in La Boca

Seeing Boca Juniors play at La Bombonera is one of the world's top spectator sports experiences, especially if the game happens to be the 'superclasico' derby match against River. Tickets are hard to come by – it's best to go via an agent like LandingPadBA (http://landingpadba.com). You can see the stadium during a visit to the Museo de la Pasión Boquense.

On match days the streets around La Bombonera are a sea of yellow and blue (the colors of Boca's strip, inspired by the flag of a Swedish ship back in 1905). Across the neighborhood, the impassioned voices of match commentators drift out from TVs and radios, above the sound of the fans singing and cheering at the ground; when Boca scores you'll be sure to know about it.
