The "Club of the Century" in Latin America according to the IFFHS - Peñarol are the most successful team in Uruguay and one of the most storied in all of South America (hence their lofty title!)
In 2016 the club opened the Campeón del Siglo stadium and made the long-awaited move from the Centenario, finally having their own home stadium big enough for their huge support.

Where we'll meet -  Our group will meet in central Montevideo.
Your bilingual guide will explain the context of Uruguayan football, the day's game and Peñarol's history. More importantly, they'll let you know exactly what you need to do and be aware of to be one of the lucky few to gain entry into the impressive new 'CDS'

The Build-Up From there we’ll head to the stadium outside the city and mingle with the fans, enjoying a choripán with all the toppings and a beer/mate, the perfect preparation for a day watching the Aurinegro (black and yellow).
Your guide will accompany you in reduced groups (~8 pax.) to the correct entrance gate, through the squeeze of security controls and police checkpoints, and finally into the ground. 

The match - Past the famous Rocket locomotive at the stadium entrance - the club's nickname of Carbonero (the coal-men) comes form this - and into the impressive modern arena. A sea of black and yellow is an impressive sight and the spectacle behind the goals cranks up the atmosphere.
Your guide will keep the group together, and finding a good spot among the fans, explain the songs and describe the stadium's intricacies.

The Come-Down - The inevitable adrenaline crash after the ecstasy, streaming out of the exits and back towards the centre of Montevideo…
You’ll head back to town to a secure spot and your guide will assist in pointing you in the right direction to get back home safely, whether you're staying in Uruguay or heading on the ferry to Buenos Aires.

Important to know

  • For some clubs, tickets are very hard to come by and are available exclusively to members, sponsors or can only be found through various levels of re-sale. For others, tickets are available but can only be bought in-person, with local ID/bank cards, or through numerous inventive means of wasting your time. We will make sure to find tickets for you and guarantee their authenticity.

  • The access to the stadium is filled with different controls and security checks in which police and fans get mixed up, sometimes creating tension. Our expert guides have navigated these sites dozens of times, know the ins and outs, and can anticipate and handle these situations so you don’t have to.

  • Many football fans in Argentina are not used to seeing tourists and barely speak English. In a way, this is what makes our experience truly authentic, and we will help with Spanish so no language barriers affect your match-day.

  • Many supporters will appreciate it if you show your support through your clothing, by wearing the club's merchandise like a shirt, beanie, jacket, etc. Dressing with the club colours will be fine, but if you want a jersey make sure to take a look at our store.

  • Football in Argentina is an amazing subculture. Our expert guide will let you know everything you need about the context of the game, the history of the clubs, the traditional pre-game rituals, the meaning of the songs you will hear, the significance of the flags and symbols, and more.

  • The chaos and unpredictability in Argentine football are what makes it uniquely beautiful, and uniquely frustrating. The League often decides fixtures at the last moment, and changes can happen late on also. If this is the case, we will let you know in advance for you to make a decision according to your availability.
