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 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.
