Overview

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.

Newell’s Copa de la Ligua fixture 2024 is now available! We are open to questions regarding your upcoming visit to Rosario!

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.

I can just get a ticket why should I book a matchday experience?

Homefans is created with the mission to connect sport fans in any destination around the world. Attending sports events is so much better when experiences are shared and when you can learn something about the club or the destination.

Whilst getting just a ticket is an option for travellers, matchday experiences on the Homefans marketplace are all led by locals. Which means you don’t have to worry about the logistics and will be in safe hands on match days.

In some destinations and clubs, it’s best to be accompanied with a local rather than going on your own. Every host on the Homefans marketplace is screened and vetted, so you can enjoy a safe and memorable experience wherever you go!

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.

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.

Looking for a private experience just for you and/or your group? Reach out to info@homefans.net for more information.

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 reasons on why you want to cancel, please get in touch with Homefans and we’ll do our best to ensure you get either credit or can book another experience of choice,

Newell's Old Boys v Boca

Had a great day visiting Rosario for the Newell's v Boca match. The tour was very well organised by the host, Juan who as well as taking us to the match gave us a tour of some of the important football barrios of Rosario. The atmosphere inside and outside the stadium was incredible despite the result. I highly reccomend going to Rosario, its a real football city, very nice people and everyone wants to talk about their team!

The best way to experience Rosario!

If you are fan of sports in general or just want an authentic Rosario experience this is a must see activity! Juan organized everything for us from pickup to planning out various areas of Rosario to see (Messi’s neighborhood, various murals of other Rosario footballing legends, important Rosario landmarks along the drive, etc.). The actual prematch and match experience was amazing as well as the Carlitos Juan will introduce you to alongside the beers were the best food we had in Argentina by far! Overall, our day with Juan was the highlight of our trip and I could not recommend something to do in Rosario more than this.

Amazing experience

Juan organised an amazing trip. He organised our transport to Rosario and back to Buenos Aires, took us on a tour around Messi’s neighbourhood, which was really interesting, then we had food and beers kindly bought for us and then the game was amazing and Juan was able to answer all questions and was able to make everyone feel very comfortable.

Newell’s Old Boys

We had a tremendous experience watching a Newell’s Old Boys game with Juan. He was an excellent host, informative and gracious. The communication leading up to the match was very good too. Juan made sure everything went smoothly. I highly recommend catching a game in Rosario with Juan. We had an unforgettable evening, and really enjoyed seeing the passion and culture surrounding the club.

Newell's with Juan

I had a brilliant trip to Rosario, and was helped at every stage by Juan. Prior to arriving in Rosario he shared some great information and articles via WhatsApp that got me excited ahead of my visit and gave me a taste of the passion for football Rosario has. Juan accommodated all of the groups requests, and gave us a tour of the city by car showing us Messi's neighbourhood home and murals. Prior to the game we ate and drank a beer at Juan's local restaurant and soaked up the atmosphere as the party headed to the streets pre-match. The stadium and our seats were fantastic. Although the game ended in defeat for Newells it did not take anything away from the atmosphere or experience. A must see in Argentina! Thank you Juan.
