Bilingual Guide


The city of Rosario is known for having the wildest hinchas from Argentina, and 50% of them have blue and yellow running through their veins. Don’t miss the chance of visiting Rosario for a day-tip to watch el Canalla in Arroyito.

Where we'll meet -  Our group will meet in Retiro and catch a bus towards Rosario. The bus ride will take 3-4 hours, so we will dedicate all of the day to the game. Your bilingual guide will explain the context of Argentine football, the day’s game and the club's history. More importantly, they’ll let you know exactly what you need to do and be aware of to make it a great football match-day experience.

The Build-Up - We'll do the previa (pre-match) in Arroyito, Rosario Central’s area in the city, grabbing a choripán and a couple of beers. We'll mingle with other fans and learn their traditions, especially how to do the correct wrist-flick for our agite and how to prepare a Fernet&Coca viajero. Your guide will accompany you in reduced groups to the correct entrance gate, through the squeeze of security controls and police checkpoints, and finally into the ground.

The match - Through the turnstiles and up the stairs. El Gigante de Arroyito is called the Giant for a reason, and it’s not for the 45.000 fans it holds but how they make you feel. The stadium will burst with flags, smoke, and the emotional chants of fans

The Come-Down - Back to Buenos Aires, we’ll catch a bus and return to Retiro Station by evening. The game is over but memories are forever.

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 various other inventive ways 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.
