History and description

In the first decades of the 20th century, River Plate occupied various grounds spread over Buenos Aires. In order to meet the needs of their supporters who were growing rapidly, the board decided to build a new stadium. The stadium finally opened on May 3, 1949. A plot of land was bought in the Belgrano area in 1935. Construction on the North Stand started in 1935, but due to a lack of funds it wasn't completed until 1949. The stadium finally opened on May 3, 1949.

Today, it is one of the most popular stadiums in the world and holds more than 100,000 people. The Monumental Stadium officially opened on May 26th, 1938 with a friendly match between River and Uruguayan side Peñarol. Today, it is one of the most popular stadiums in the world and can hold over 100,000 fans.

The construction of the North Stand was completed in 1958. The stadium could hold about 100,000 fans at that time.

In 1977, the North Stand of El Monumental underwent further developments, adding a second tier. However, changes at the lower tiers reduced the stadium's capacity to 76,600.

El Monumental was the centrepiece venue of the 1978 World Cup, hosting three matches during the group phase, another three during the second group phase, and the match for third place.

In 1986, the stadium was renamed Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti in honour of the president who initiated its construction. The stadium has not undergone any major changes since.

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

How to get to El Monumental

The Monumental Stadium is located in the Belgrano area of Buenos Aires, north of the city center. The stadium is close to the banks of the Rio de la Plata and about 5 kilometers from Palermo, a nightlife area. At the intersection with Calle 23 de Mayo, turn right and walk until you reach the stadium. There is no metro station particularly close to El Monumental. However, the stadium can be reached in about 20 minutes walking from station Congreso de Tucumán on line D (green). Walk north over the Avenida Congreso. At the intersection with Calle 23 de Mayo, turn right and walk until you reach the stadium.

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 5-minute walk away from the stadium.

Another train service from Retiro goes to the stations Belgrano or Nuñez. The walk from either station takes about 20 minutes.

There are several buses that pass the stadium. Bus 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. Bus 15 runs along Avenida Santa Fé in Palermo. Get off at the same point.

There are other collectives that connect to the stadium via line 28, 42, 107, and 130, though none from central places.

Eat, drink, and sleep near El Monumental

The Monumental stadium is located in a well off residential area, with generally medium sized houses and apartment blocks nearby. There will be a few bars and restaurants near the stadium, as well as a few restaurants and bars close to central Belgrano (such as on Avenida Cabildo where the metro runs). There are a few hotels located not far from El Monumental Stadium. River House Bed and Breakfast is only a few blocks away, while Cristal Palace Hotel, Sarum Hotel Design, and Ker Belgrano Apartments and Spa are decent options.

River Plate Tickets

They are usually priced at COP$100 for adults and COP$50 for children. Tickets for River games can generally be bought from one or two days before the match at the ticket windows of Estadio Monumental. They are usually priced at $100 for adults and $50 for children. However, club members have preference in buying tickets and tickets go on general sale only if tickets remain after the member sales. River does tend to sell out a reasonable number of high-profile games.

The ticket prices for a given match will depend on the section and seat. Lower-level seats can be had for as little as AR$250, while upper-level seats can run up to AR$700.

Relevant Internet links

The website of Club Atlético River Plate, the city of Buenos Aires, and public transport journey planner Comoviajo all share the same name. The game was played and the stadium was full of people. There was no support because the main group is banned after the Boca trouble last year. The stadium is old but amazing. Every few minutes you can see a plane landing.
