When I first came to Buenos Aires I didn't know anyone. Then I started playing futbol with BAFA. Not only were the organizers (Megan + Anne) super welcoming, they managed to show me many cultural experiences that I will never forget. BAFA is not just about futbol (soccer), it's about connecting with the local community. Go check them out!

Not only the concept is pretty simple but also the way the service is provided makes the experience of playing football abroad a very pleasant one. The staff is outstanding and willing to make you part of their Bs As family. Couldn't feel more at home. There's various levels of players and lots of matches per week to attend depending... More

I was doing my solo traveling in Argentina and I discovered Bafa by chance.. The positive energy these guys bring to the table is great. Besides the fun filled football , the post game vibes are great and so was the beer and company ! I managed to pull a muscle amidst the game , but It was worth it!... More

100% the best way to meet people in Buenos Aires. Always a good game with great players! The standard varies and you'll be able to find a game that suits you - whether you're ultra-competitive or just fancy a kickabout. Very, very reasonable prices, great pitches to play on and you're always greeted with a smile! Fully recommend.

I had an amazing time playing football with BAFA during my time in Buenos Aires. The website is so simple which makes joining a game easy, and there are always plenty of games available. The facilities are fantastic and there's always a great atmosphere with whoever you end up sharing your game with (or whoever you're trying not to injure,... More

If it weren't for BAFA, I wouldn't be playing football in Buenos Aires. As an amateur pretty low in the sport's food chain, the idea of playing in a country known to have produced demi gods was pretty intimidating. But BAFA provides games to suit any player's needs - from seriously competitive matches to more relaxed, instructive sessions - in... More

BAFA was great! When I first got to Buenos Aires I knew I wanted to play soccer but had no leads to where to play. Luckily, someone told me about BAFA and from the first game I was hooked. It was a great place to meet people and just have fun playing some pickup matches with people interested in soccer... More

While living in Buenos Aires for four months, and I wanted to experience the soccer (futbol) culture. A friend recommended BAFA, a pick up league, as a good place to start. It's super easy to sign up, the games are in safe locations, and they are played with people from all over the world, so it's incredibly fun. I ended... More
