History and description

The stadium has a capacity of over 80,000 people and the first national match played there was between Peru and Bolivia on November 16, 1954. The Estadio Nacional was built in the early 1950s, and was part of a series of large infrastructure projects instigated by then-President of Peru Manuel A. Odría. The stadium has a capacity of over 80,000 people, and the first national match played there was between Peru and Bolivia on November 16th, 1954. On October 27, 1952, the football stadium officially opened with a friendly international between Peru and Bolivia.

At the time, Estadio Nacional was still largely uncovered and had an athletics track. It could only hold around 50,000 spectators.

In 1964, Estadio Nacional was the site of a disaster during an international match between Peru and Argentina. The referee cancelled a goal toward the end of the match, causing riots to break out that led to the police firing tear gas in the stands. This created a stampede, which lead to the death of over 300 fans.

The stadium's capacity decreased slightly following the disaster, but remained about the same until a major redevelopment program was started in the late 2000s.

Between 2009 and 2011, new rows of private boxes were added on top of the stands, a new roof and exterior were put up, and seats and internal facilities were upgraded. The stadium was reinaugurated on 24 July 2011.

The national stadium, Estadio Nacional, is the standard playing venue for the Peruvian national team. While it's not currently home to a permanent club, it regularly hosts high-profile games between local teams like Sporting Cristal.

How to get to Estadio Nacional

The stadium can be accessed by bus or taxi. The Estadio Nacional is located in central Lima, just south of Plaza San Martín and just north of the Paseo de la República, which runs south from the historic centre to the more upscale Miraflores and Barranco areas on the pacific coast. The stadium can be accessed by bus or taxi. The bus terminal for the Cruz del Sur bus line is located 3 kilometers south of the stadium on Paseo de la República.

Catch the Metropolitano fixed-lane bus line that runs along the Paseo de la Republica. The nearest station is Estadio Nacional, which is directly next to the stadium.

Many of Lima's popular neighborhoods are located along the Metropolitano, including Barranco and Miraflores in the south, and the historic center. Make sure to catch a line that stops at Estadio Nacional (e.g. B, C, and 1) as not all do.

Address: Calle de Jose Diaz, 15046 Lima

Eat, drink, and sleep near Estadio Nacional

The Estadio Nacional is located in a densely populated urban area in Lima. Some of Lima's main museums lie just north of the stadium, while the small Parque de la Reserva park lies right on the other side. There are many eating and drinking options in the area around the stadium, though for proper bars and nightlife it is better to head south to the Miraflores or Barranco areas on the Pacific coast.

Alianza Lima's stadium, Estadio Alejandro Villanueva, is located a fifteen-minute walk away on the other side of Paseo de la Republica though the area east of the Paseo de la Republica is not one of Lima's best and is thus best avoided.

There are various hotels near Estadio Nacional, some in the budget range and some more expensive. Hostal Las Camelias is located just south of the stadium, and La Posada del Parque is an option on the northern side. Both get decent reviews. Click here to see all hotels near Estadio Nacional.

If you need to catch a bus the next morning, staying close to the Cruz del Sur terminal at Daniel's Apart Hotel is an option.

The historic centre can be a bit rough at night, so it may not be the best area to stay. However, the San Isidro area south of the stadium has many options and is a short taxi ride away. The Miraflores area is perfect if you stay in the city for a few more days and want to enjoy Lima's nightlife.
