History and description

It had a capacity of over 100,000 people and was used primarily for football matches. The Estadio Juan Domingo Presidente Perón was built in 1947 and 1950. It has a capacity of over 100,000 people and is most commonly used for football matches. The Estadio Presidente Peron was replaced by Racing's old ground at the same site, and it was made possible by a loan from the Argentine government. In return for his support, then Argentine president Perón was made honorary president, his wife Evita honorary member, and the stadium was named in his honour.

On 3 September 1950, the El Cilindro stadium opened with a league match between Racing and Velez Sarsfield.

The stadium could initially hold about 100,000 fans, but this number was regularly passed as many fans entered illegally. For example, an estimated 115,000 people were witness of Racing beating Celtic in the second leg of the 1967 Intercontinental Cup final.

The El Cilindro underwent a large redevelopment between 1995 and 1997; this included the construction of a roof that covered all seats. At the same time, the capacity got reduced to its current amount.

Despite its large size, the stadium has never been chosen as a venue for any international tournament held in Argentina. This is mainly because of its close competition from Estadio Monumental.

How to get to El Cilindro

President Peron Stadium is located in the city of Avellaneda, a suburb of Buenos Aires just south of the Capital Federal city limits. The stadium lies about 7 kilometres south of Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires' microcentro, and about 4 kilometres from the La Boca area. Do you know of a bus that connects the stadium with Buenos Aires' microcentro? The bus runs through the centre, stopping at Maipú. It then goes down Avenida Manuel Belgrano and connects to the stadium. The bus takes about 35 minutes and costs around $3.

If you want to avoid the Buenos Aires bus system, taking the train to Dario Maxi (Santillan y Kosteki) is an alternative. The walk from Dario Maxi station to El Cilindro only takes 10 minutes. Frequent trains depart Plaza Constitucion station (on metro line C) for the 8-minute journey.

Address: Pasaje Mozart y O.O. Corbatta, Avellaneda, Provincia de Buenos Aires

Racing Tickets

Tickets can generally be bought at the stadium, the club office at Nogoya 3045 in the west of Buenos Aires, or the club store at Lavalle 1650 in the microcenter. Ticket windows are usually also open on the day of the match at the stadium.

Ticket prices can depend on the opponent, but a seat in the lower level terraces will cost between AR$250 and AR$400, while seats in the upper level cost more. Prices for those at the terraces will range from AR$400 to AR$800.

The Racing Club website is the official website of Racing Club, as well as the city of Buenos Aires' site. Comoviajo is a website thatallows you to plan your bus or metro trip around Buenos Aires. There is a moat around the pitch at the football stadium which I have never seen before. It was also amusing to me that there were a couple of dogs freely roaming through the crowd on one of the long sides of the stadium.

I was directed to the blue turnstile and entered. There was a long queue at the concession stand, so I had to be quick. The race started shortly after I arrived and I had to keep up with the others. We were all running towards the finish line.

The ticket I received seemed to allow me access for the area that La Guardia Imperial are located in and the tier above them. I chose to locate myself in the latter. Although there wasn't a huge crowd, no doubt partially because of the opposition and partly because of Racing's poor start to the season, there was still a very good atmosphere.

If you're interested in football and are in Buenos Aires, then you should definitely visit the Presidente Peron stadium. It has a much larger capacity than the Independiente stadium, plus it's an awesome structure with beautiful architecture. So if you're looking for an exciting sports experience and want to see some beautiful architecture, this is the place to go.

You can even see the other stadium - Independiente's - from the Presidente Peron. But this one is better not only for the capacity, but also for the architecture structure. If you like football and you are in Buenos Aires, you will have a good time here. Recommended.

The train from Buenos Aires takes about 10 minutes and a walk from the station about 15. Right next to the stadium is Independiente stadium.

After the game I found a taxi outside. The price was 300 Pesos, and the driver did state the increased price before we left. I'm glad I visited this ground and would recommend anyone to give it a go if they have the chance.
