Football is the favourite, the second favourite and the third favourite sport in Argentina. Football is passion. Take the time to see at least one game during your trip.
rnThe season is split into two: the ‘apertura’ (opening), which begins in August and climaxes in December, and the ‘clausura’ (closing), which runs from February to July, while the Copa Libertadores runs through the winter months until July, depending on the season and how many games are postponed due to crowd violence.
rnGoFootball (see below) will take you to the games in safety – believe us when we say that Argentine stadiums are dangerous and intimidating places.
