History and description

The River Plate Stadium was built in the 1930s, and it has been used by the club ever since. In the end, only the South Stand was built. A plot of land was bought in the Belgrano area in 1935. Construction on the North Stand started soon after, but due to insufficient budget, construction on the South Stand had to be postponed for many more years. In the end, only the South Stand was built.

On 26 May 1938, the Monumental stadium officially opened with a friendly match between River and Uruguayan side Peñarol.

In 1958, the construction of the North Stand was completed with funds that had been set aside for this purpose. The stadium could at that time hold about 100,000 fans.

In 1977, changes were made to the North Stand at El Monumental stadium, which reduced its capacity to 76,600 people.

El Monumental was the main venue of the 1978 World Cup. It hosted three matches during the first group phase and another three in the second group phase. The match for third place was also played there, as was the final between Argentina and Holland (3-1).

In 1986, the stadium El Monumental officially became Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti in honour of the president who initiated its construction. Over the years, very few changes have been made to it.

The Estadio Monumental is also the stadium where the Argentine national team commonly plays their home matches.

How to get to El Monumental

The El Monumental stadium is located in the north of Buenos Aires, close to the banks of the Rio de la Plata. The stadium is about 9 kilometers from the city's business center (Microcentro) and about 5 kilometers from popular nightlife area Palermo. Turn right at the first traffic light onto Avenida Costanera, and continue walking until you reach Plaza San Martín. The stadium is on your left.

From Retiro bus and train station, the stadium can be reached with local commuter trains (Ferrovias). There is regular service from Retiro to station Scalabrini Ortiz, which is a short walk away from the stadium.

Other train services from Retiro go to either the station Belgrano or Nuñez. The walk from either station takes about 20 minutes.

Several buses pass by the stadium. Colectivo 29 goes past Plaza de Mayo (Microcentro), Avenida Cordoba, and runs through Palermo on Güemes street. Get off at the crossing of Avenida de Libertador and Quesada. Colectivo 15 runs along Avenida Santa Fé in Palermo. Get off at the same point.

These lines originate mostly in neighborhoods close to the stadium, providing residents in these areas easy access to the game. Other colectivos that connect with the stadium are: Line 28, 42, 107, and 130. These lines originate mostly from neighborhoods close to the stadium, providing residents in these areas easy access to the game.

Address: Figueroa Alcorta, 7597 Capital Federal

Eat, drink, and sleep near El Monumental

The massive Monumental stadium is located in a well-off residential area, with a few bars and restaurants nearby. There are also many eating and drinking establishments in central Belgrano, such as on the Avenida Cabildo (where the metro runs). There are a number of hotels not too far away from El Monumental. River House Bed & Breakfast is only a few blocks from the stadium, while Cristal Palace Hotel, Sarum Hotel Design, and Ker Belgrano Apart & Spa are decent options near the Avenida Cabildo.

Alternatively, you can choose to stay in the Palermo area of the city, where taxis to the stadium are quite affordable (or you can catch the metro or a bus).

River Plate Tickets

Tickets for River games can generally be purchased from one or two days before the match at the ticket windows (boleviarias) of Estadio Monumental. However, members of the club have preference when purchasing tickets and tickets go on general sale only if tickets remain after member sales. The River does tend to sell out a reasonable number of high-profile games.

The ticket prices for a particular match will depend on the location of the seat, but can range from AR$250.00 for an upper-tier seat at one of the curves to AR$700.00 for a middle-tier seat at one of the long sides.

The stadium is old but amazing. Every few minutes you can see a plane landing.
