Luna Park Stadium

Address: Av. Corrientes y Bouchard 465 – San Nicolás

An emblematic Building of the city of Buenos Aires, it constitutes a stage of international prestige. It was born as a Sports Venue dedicated fundamentally to boxing through which the most prestigious figures in the world have past and taken part in championships remembered throughout the world. It is the fulfilled dream of its owner Jose Tito Lectoure. Until then, the competition was carreid out in modest and precarious social venues.
It was inaugurated in 1934, and displays a contemporary style. Its great internal structure allows to modify its lay out according to the necessities of each event and spectacle that takes place there. Although its central ring has always been the soul of this place, it has been a sports, recreational and cultural center since its conception.
Parallel to the sport activity, with the years, it grew into a venue for different musical spectacles, ballet and mega concerts of artists of great importance, for those for whom the possibility of acting in el Luna is always a dream to fulfill, exhausting its capacity that goes from 12.000 to 35.000 people, depending on the lay out demanded.
This place keeps much more history than the one related to sports or artistic shows. Great part of the social, historical and cultural life has taken place in Luna Park. Juan Pablo II has been here, Juan Domingo Perón and Eva Duarte met in this place, and, the vestiges of Julio Sosa, Carlos Gardel, Oscar Bonavena and Pascual Perez have been mourned here as well.
At an artistic level, stars such as Frank Sinatra, Pavarotti, Liza Minelli, Joan Manuel Serrat and many other great artists of the entire world have been on stage, and continue embellishing its billboard.

River Plate Soccer Stadium

Address: Av. Figueroa Alcorta y Av. Udaondo s/n – Belgrano

It is located in the elegant neighborhood of Núñez and it is the stadium of one of the two most popular football clubs: River Plate, which is related to the high society and to the Argentinian bourgeoisie. Its eternal rival is Boca Juniors, which is related to the lower classes. Due to said fact, the fans of this club state that they represent “half plus one of the country” bragging before River Plate about the number of fans they have. In spite of the stereotype of its followers, this club, whose name only means Silver River, obviously alluding to the Río de la Plata, recognizes the same place of birth as its rival. It was born in the La Boca neighborhood in 1901 during a carnival, when a group of youngsters took some red ribbons that hanged from the carnival carriages and attached them to their white t-shirts in a diagonal, giving origin to the “red band”, the famous t-shirt that would be its trademark forever. There is where its first seat was born, but then it moved to Palermo where it stayed forever in the Núñez neighborhood.
Its stadium was inaugurated in 1938 with a capacity for 70,000 people, who made it one of the biggest stadiums in Latin America, which gave place to its nickname “El Monumental” (the monumental). It was modified and updated in 1978 because of the World Cup in Argentina. It is the central seat for the all the games the National Football League plays and also for important events of Los Pumas (the official National Rugby League) and it is transformed into one of the most important places for the mega music concerts of great bands such as The Rolling Stones, U2, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Madonna, Guns n’ Roses, among many others. The River Plate Club is located in the neighboring premises to the stadium, where more than 60 activities related to sports, society and culture are developed here. The indoors Olympic swimming pool and the big interactive museum stand out.

The “Monumental” is the largest in Argentina
