Argentina is in the process of reopening and a range of trials are underway, all of which involve checking customers vaccination status.  We have linked to these requirements above.  While the restrictions may ease we advise all customers looking to travel to Argentina to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

I was fortunate enough to get a ticket for River Plate's title-winning match against Racing Club. Alvaro proved to be an amazing guide and was very hospitable, always available to answer any questions. He knows a lot about football and the city of Buenos Aires. Getting into the stadium was easy, even for an English-only speaker. The seat was perfect, as goes for the overall experience. I can definitely recommend the services offered by Homefans. Till next time!

Amazing Experience

Getting tickets for the game was a piece of cake with this service. Alvaro was a great guide. Getting into the stadium was easy and I don't know how I would have gone to the match otherwise as a non-native and English-only speaker. The match itself was great (go River Plate!) and our seats were amazing. I'll be using Alvaro again next time I'm in BA.

Once In a Lifetime Experience

Our guide Alvaro was extremely attentive, prompt, flexible, and professional with regards to scheduling this visit as well as answering any questions. He is very knowledgeable about Argentine football and made himself available nearly 24/7. We were able to bypass a lot of the difficulties associated with securing a spot in the Monumental and watched River Plate lift the league trophy in a historic 4-0 win over Racing Club along with 72,000+ passionate supporters. I went with friends from Argentina and the U.S and both said it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I had been to the Monumental before, but I had never been so close to the action with such awesome seats-- right next to the pitch and with a clear view of all of the action and festivities. At one point we. realized we were sitting immediately behind River Plate's Captain's family when a radio station came to interview them after the match. Definitely exceeded my expectations; unlike anything i've experienced before, 10/10.
