The definitive football city guide to live the authentic football experience of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires stands for football. Not only is it the city with the most stadiums per capita in the world and home to recent world champions, but it also lives in a constant state of madness, with passion for local football erupting every weekend.

The autonomous city of Buenos Aires and the metropolitan area (known as AMBA) are two different things politically, but in everyday life they act as a major football epicenter. Many clubs are located in the Metropolitan Area, in cities that are not strictly Buenos Aires, but are one, five or ten kilometers away. For example, Racing and independentthe clubs that spawned Lautaro Martínez and Sergio Agüero are in Avellaneda, but people still call them Buenos Aires Clubs.

Football in Argentina is quite concentrated in this region and almost half of the 28 First Division teams come from Buenos Aires or the Metropolitan Area. The game was brought to Argentina by English immigrants and Buenos Aires has always been the heart of football in the country.

Here GOAL takes you through the ideal experience of a Soccer Cities match day in Buenos Aires.
