Overview

The Avellaneda Derby is perhaps the most underrated in all of the Americas. Just metres separate the stadiums of these two historic teams and when red and blue go head to head you don’t want to miss out.

Join us for an unforgettable atmosphere in a derby that is more local than any other. Dive just south of Buenos Aires capital with us for some food, drinks, and fantastic football. The narrow city streets between these grounds come alive on matchday, for the home fans at least, as the away followers hide behind their sofas the hosts turn the streets into a festival of colour and noise.

We relish hosting friends from all across the world to join us for an incredible football experience in Argentina. Our hospitality goes beyond the matchday experience; you will make friends for life and receive some of the best tips and local recommendations for your whole stay in Buenos Aires. Do not hesitate to contact us with any football or travel query!

On matchday, of course, the beers will flow and you will sample some local food like milanesa, pizza, choripan or bondiola! If you have any specific food or drink requirements don’t worry at all, we will cater to your needs… and the food part of your experience will be before or after the game depending on kick off time – again, we’ll let you know!

Stadium section may vary from game to game, please message if you have any specific enquiries and we will reply as promptly as possible.

Yes, the Superclasico is special, but the Avellaneda derby hits differently! Book now so you don’t miss the next historic Racing v Independiente match.

FAQs

Is Homefans responsible for the activity?

Even though we are a friendly bunch, we are not directly responsible for the activity.

We are a marketplace, which means we facilitate that travellers like yourself, take part in a sports experience offered by a fully-vetted local host who has enrolled on the platform.

The responsibility to carry out the activity relies exclusively on the local host. However, we as a marketplace and acting in the interests of everyone, supervise everything and facilitate  comms and support  when needed for a flawless experience.

Is the match date confirmed?

Whilst the fixture calendar has been released, final confirmed dates are usually announced 2weeks before the kick-off date, due to TV schedule and the AFA (Argentina Football Association) disposition. It is possible then, that Sunday matches will move to Saturday, Monday and vice-versa.  The local hosts will keep you posted in case there is a change.

When will I receive confirmation of the tour?

When you choose and pay for your an activity on the Homefans marketplace, you will receive a booking confirmation directly after the booking via email. In this confirmation, you will get all the details of your booking.

How will the host get in touch?

Once the booking is done, you will receive an order confirmation and the Homefans tech platform will notify the host about it. You can always chat with the host on the marketplace by clicking on the ‘ASK A QUESTION‘ button – you will send and receive messages you can check on your own dashboard with email notifications.

A few days prior to the game, the host will get in touch with you via Whatsapp to arrange the appropriate logistics.

How are the activities planned and executed?

The activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals that have been approved by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

What does an activity include?

An activity on the Homefans marketplace involves a fully-vetted host, who offers a specific experience around a sporting event (match day experience with a ticket for the game) or some other cultural experiences (walking tours, stadium & museum tours with a local, among others).

They last between 2 hours up to a whole day. Please check the inclusions in each activity on the “What’s Included‘ section.

Can I bring bags to the stadium?

We recommend not to bring bags and valuables to the stadia in Argentina. Just the bare minimum to be more comfortable during your experience.

Also, please restrain from wearing the away team’s colours as it will make it almost impossible to access the ground.

I might need to cancel - what shall I do?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend the activity you booked, you can do it within the next 24 hours after your booking was done.

According to our Terms & Conditions, after the 24 hour window, the host cancellation policy applies, and it depends on each host.  Given that it involves tickets, it’s usually non-refundable.

If you have solid grounds on why you want to cancel, please get in touch with Homefans and we will facilitate the process with the local host.
