History and description

It is the largest stadium in South America, with a capacity of over 100,000 spectators. The Estadio Nacional (National Stadium) was built in the early 1950s and it is currently the largest stadium in South America with a capacity of over 100,000 spectators. It was part of a series of large infrastructure projects instigated by then-President Manuel A. Odría. The Stadium officially opened on October 27, 1952 with a friendly international between the national teams of Peru and Bolivia.

The Estadio Nacional was still largely uncovered back then, had an athletics track, and could hold just under 50,000 spectators.

In 1964, Estadio Nacional was the site of an unfortunate stadium disaster that happened during a Peru vs Argentina international. When the referee cancelled a goal toward the end of the match, riots broke out, which led to the police firing tear gas in the stands. The resulting stampede resulted in the death of over 300 fans.

After the disaster, capacity at the stadium decreased by a small amount. However, the stadium remained largely unchanged until a major redevelopment program started in the late 2000s.

Between 2009 and 2011, a new roof and exterior were put up, and seats and internal facilities were upgraded at the stadium. The stadium was re-inaugurated on 24 July 2011.

The Estadio Nacional is the standard playing venue for the Peruvian national team. It has not had a permanent club occupant, but it regularly hosts high-profile games of local teams like Sporting Cristal.

How to get to Estadio Nacional

The National Stadium is located in central Lima, just south of Plaza San Martín and within walking distance of the Paseo de la República, which runs south from the historic center to the more upscale Miraflores and Barranco areas on the Pacific Coast. The bus terminal for the Cruz del Sur bus route lies about 3 kilometres south of the stadium, just off Paseo de la República.

Take a taxi or catch the Metropolitano fixed-lane bus line that runs along Paseo de la Republica. The nearest station is Estadio Nacional directly next to the stadium.

Many of Lima's popular neighbourhoods are accessible by the Metropolitano line, including Barranco and Miraflores in the south, and the historic centre. Make sure to catch a line that stops at Estadio Nacional (e.g. B, C, and 1) as not all lines do.

Address: Calle de Jose Diaz, 15046 Lima

Eat, drink, and sleep near Estadio Nacional

The Estadio Nacional is located in a densely urban area near some of Lima's principal avenues. Nearby are some of Lima's main museums, as well as the Parque de la Reserva park. The stadium of Alianza Lima, Estadio Alejandro Villanueva, is located a fifteen-minute walk away on the other side of Paseo de la Republica though the area east of Paseo de la Republica is not one of Lima's best and should be avoided.

Various hotels are located near Estadio Nacional. The most budget-friendly option is Hostal Las Camelias, which is located just south of the stadium. La Posada del Parque, on the northern side, is also a viable option and gets good reviews. Click here to view all hotels near Estadio Nacional.

Keeping close to the Cruz del Sur terminal at Daniel's Apart Hotel, for example, may be an option if you need to catch a bus the next morning.

The historic center may not be the best area to stay in Lima at night, as there are areas south of the stadium that boast more options. However, staying in the Miraflores area is perfect if you want to enjoy Lima's nightlife for a few more days.
