"La Boca : the club and football stadion" La Boca District Tip by ptitetoile

La Boca District, Buenos Aires: 104 reviews and 208 photos


The "Club Atlético Boca Juniors" is one of the most important sport institution in Argentina.
The colors of the club (yellow and blue) were chosen at the creation of the club by young people : they decided to take the colors of the first ship which would enter the harbour of the Riachuelo...and it was a Swedish ship!!!

The Club is housed in the famous stadion called "the bombonera" because of its candy box shape. The stadion was inaugurated in 1940.
I was told that the area of the stadion was not very safe but I was lucky! I could take a look at the houses around and safely go in a
sport shops to buy a shirt of the club for my nephew for christmas : he loved it!!!!!!
