Estadio Nacional

Soccer in Santiago

On the whole, Chileans are a pretty calm lot – until they step foot in a fútbol (soccer) stadium. The most dramatic matches are against local rivals like Peru or Argentina, when 'Chi-Chi-Chi-Lay-Lay-Lay' reverberates through the Estadio Nacional.

Tickets can be bought at the stadium. Equally impassioned are the hinchas (fans) of Santiago's first-division fútbol teams like Colo Colo, Universidad de Chile and Universidad Católica.
