soccer game

I have always wanted to go to a "real" soccer game. The Argentines seem very passionate about their soccer (Futbol).

I have heard it can be kind of crazy. Is it safe for a gringo to go one of these games.

Hi jgreemore !!

Yes,, we really are very passionate about our futbol.

Depending on the matches, it could be more o less dangerous.

On the other hand, River Plate and Boca Juniors are used to receive tourists.

The thing is that's an event where you have to take care of yourself and your belongings. And I don't say you as a tourist, I mean people in general, locals too.

And one more thing, I don't recommend going to the stadium with little children.

Enjoy !

You can go in a tour group to a futbol game also .. look at their websites and see if this appeals to you.. sort of sounds easier to do than to try to go on your own.. or it would be for me :)

lol, I have to laugh at the statement .. " Argentines seem very passionate about their soccer (Futbol) ....

An understatement if ever there was one ! :)
