When one thinks of football in Argentina, it’s usually the superlásico. There are a few exceptions. However, there are parts of Argentina’s vastly diverse, sprawling capital that see this titanic clash as something of a sideshow. Across the River Riachuelo from Central Buenos Aires, in the port city of Avellaneda to the south of the capital, all that matters is their very own Clásico. At least once every year, Racing Club and Independiente do battle in El Clásico de Avellaneda, it’s one of Argentina’s most intense fixtures on the calendar. It’s a match that you need to tick off your bucket list.
The rivalry between Independiente and Racing is one of proximity. To make matters more interesting and chaotic, the team’s home stadiums are literally three blocks away from each other. It is a local derby in the truest sense. In Avellaneda, Independiente and Racing graffiti compete on the walls. There are two types of bars: Racing bars and Independiente bars. Two types of restaurants: Racing restaurants and Independiente restaurants. And two types of people: Racing fans and Independiente fans.
Experience a day with a local group of Independiente members. The stadium, which seats a maximum of 50,000 supporters, is the most family-friendly of the Buenos Aires options. This matchday includes transportation, “pre-match”, which is known as “previa” a few blocks from the stadium, eating traditional food, and drinking open tap beers.
Book this Independiente matchday experience packaged with authentic bilingual guides/fans, a pregame right outside the stadium, and transportation. Entry and a hassle-free day guaranteed!
