Overview

Hi! I’m Fernando. Your local host in Banfield.

Forget about Boca and River. Immerse yourself in the world of Banfield, a neighborhood that cannot be thought of without its football team. The club, founded in 1896, marks the pulse of the city to this day.

The institution, created for social purposes, incorporated football in the last days of the 20th century and since then, emotions were disrupted, more intense days were experienced and the way of feeling of the inhabitants changed. The club and the city were one. Respecting established customs that survive to this day.

Despite its geographical location, Banfield identifies more with the silence of the countryside than with the noise of big cities. In its cobblestone streets you can breathe a village air, where the bicycle and the ball resist the technological advance that computers and cell phones offer to the little ones.

Get to know El Florencio Sola, the factotum of great achievements: an advanced stadium for its time, located in the center of the city. That is why there is so much reciprocal pride between the entity and the population, between the team and its fans. Always together.

The codes are the same as always: you drink the beer on the corner with friends, always with something green and white nearby.

A law never written – but not exclusive – maintains that to be from Banfield (the club) you must be from Banfield (the city) or, at the very least, have walked its cobblestone streets until you are tired! It is not easy to understand the passion for “El Taladro” without the proper neighborhood experience. When that experience is lacking, they say, it is difficult to become flesh of the joy and pain that the incomparable afternoons of screams and tears exude at the Florencio Sola.

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.
