Bombonera Stadium

Penalty!

Argentina has football fever. Visit the Boca Juniors Stadium and discover one of the most important sporting monuments in the country. Today’s site was inaugurated on the 25th of May 1940, during a match against San Lorenzo, which also saw a victory for the local team. The Bombonera, designed by Yugoslavian architect Viktor Sulcic under the orders of engineer Jose L. Delphini, was named after its similarity to a box of sweets (‘bombons’), which was given to him during this project. This has been spread worldwide, despite the stadium formally being named after one of the club’s presidents, Alberto J. Armando in 2000. With a capacity of around 50,000, this team’s stadium was founded in 1905 by Argentineans of Italian descent, and its characteristic colours of blue and yellow have been worn by stars, such as Roberto Mouzo, Hugo Gatti, Maradona, Martin Palermo and Riquelme.
