Estadio Centenario

Stadium in Montevideo

Fútbol, a Uruguayan passion, inspires large and regular crowds. Montevideo's main stadium, the Estadio Centenario, opened in 1930 for the first World Cup, in which Uruguay defeated Argentina 4-2 in the final. Even when no game is on, you can tour the stadium in conjunction with a visit to Montevideo's Museo del Fútbol.
