What you'll do

Argentine Football is great for its chaos and unpredictability - with my help you can enjoy the mayhem with none of the hassle. Fixture lists & schedules are announced late, I follow the local football news closely and can pick the best game available each weekend. We'll meet at a central location (Palermo) & travel the easiest, safest route to the game with the fans (BA is huge!). I'll give you context on the team's history and their current situation and which players to watch. I’ll help you navigate the various Police & Stewarding controls and find the best point of entry as many access points are closed. Inside we'll be close to the action, a perfect view of the game, and just as importantly, the Ultra fan groups. The Barra Brava are often illicit organised fan groups and a key to the occasion. We will be at a safe distance to see them at work, while not getting too close. Argentine grounds are quite old and ill-maintained, while this is great aesthetically, it means they don’t have the best health & safety measures and a disappointed crowd can be impatient - again, I’ll be with you to ensure there is no trouble leaving the ground and home again.

Killian

I’m Killian, Irish, and I speak native English & fluent Argentine Spanish. I've seen games in 40+ stadiums here and have 3 years of contacts to acquire hard-to-find tickets (normally 'members only') I know each area & stadium well and can make the process of getting there and getting in as smooth as possible. Currently visiting fans are banned for most Argentine games due to previous instances of violence. While this means things are thankfully safer now, it also means getting tickets and entering the stadium can be very difficult - I can ensure a smooth and safe process for all visitors.

Where you'll be

e.g. The Bombonera - the 'Chocolate Box', home of Boca Juniors, El Monumental (River Plate), El Cilindro (Racing), El Palacio (Huracán), Libertadores de America (Independiente), Estadio Bidegain (San Lorenzo) The stadiums are littered all over the city - some in nicer neighbourhoods than others. I'll help you travel and be safe in each place. Tickets are unavailable to buy online (especially for tourists) so I will organise this in advance.
