With seats of yellow and blue to match the home team's colours, La Bombonera - meaning the chocolate box - is a large stadium tightly packed into a small space, so the tiers are high and so is the atmosphere. The capacity is just over 57,000 and in such a soccer-mad nation, the seats are very often filled, particularly during major fixtures such as the annual South American epic the Copa Libertadores.

Original Travel can provide details of fixtures and will obtain tickets to coincide with your holiday in Buenos Aires; and we can guarantee that being at a game will be an experience to stay with you a long time.
