Hello – I am Juan, a lifelong fan of Newells Old Boys and Homefans host in Rosario. Come with me and enjoy a vibrant game at “El Coloso del Parque”
Located right at the heart of the city of Rosario and in the green surroundings of Independencia Park, you can find Newell’s Old Boys stadium also known as “El Coloso del Parque”. This name is still in use nowadays , even though fans voted to change the name to Marcelo A. Bielsa in his honour in 2009 .
Many famous footballers from the club’s academy have represented Argentina at World Cups : Gabriel Batistuta, , Jorge Valdano, Gabriel Heinze, Roberto Sensini, Mauricio Pochettino, , among others. Lionel Messi also played in the club’s youths as well as Diego Maradona played for us in 1993.
After I pick you up , we will go to the Stadium surroundings to enjoy a pre-match appetizer like typical Choripan or the local “Carlito” sandwich together with some beers .
Once being warmed up with meals and chants , we will be ready for some action. I will distribute your tickets and escort you to the stand before game starts.
The stadium is always full of capacity and you can expect an amazing atmosphere! All visitors have love the Coloso s atmosphere!
When it finished, I will bring you back to meeting point.
