Estadio Hernando Siles

Top choice stadium in La Paz

The popularity of fútbol (soccer) in Bolivia is comparable to that in other Latin American countries. Matches are played at Estadio Hernando Siles. Sundays are the big game days, and there are typically matches on Wednesdays and Saturdays, too. Prices vary according to seats and whether it’s a local or international game. Get tickets at www.todotix.com, in Spanish.

You can imagine what sort of advantage the local teams have over mere lowlanders; players from elsewhere (except Potosí!) consider the high-altitude La Paz games a suicide attempt! Bring a hat.
