Football/ Soccer Games in Buenos Aires: Boca, River & Big Five Tickets

After Argentina’s World Cup win, the soccer aka football scene in Buenos Aires came back with a vengeance in 2023, especially after a couple of years of cabin fever.

In Argentina, futból is religion and each team’s stadium is a temple.

The proof is in the punting: Buenos Aires lays claim to fame as the city with the most soccer stadiums in the world.

The 2022 FIFA Fan Award went to Argentina’s fans for their unwavering backing of the Argentine National Team during the historic World Cup triumph in Qatar.

Fans are just as enthusiastic cheering for their own team back home, whether it’s one of the Big Five such as Boca Jrs., River Plate, or an emerging Division One underdog.

See the fancy footwork of Argentina’s players up close and find out why the dedication of Argentina’s fans earned them global recognition.
