Overview

We are Rama and Juan and we want to invite you to experience a game at the José Amalfitani Stadium, the home of Vélez Sarsfield.

According to the specialized press, this stadium is one of the best to experience an Argentine football match. Here moments of glory were lived in the 90’s, in the 00’s and at the beginning of the last decade. But each game is an opportunity to relive it and to renew hope for future successes.

Vélez Sarsfield is one of the institutions with the greatest interaction with the surrounding community. In addition to football, it stands out for its elementary school and its high school and for the enormous variety of sports disciplines and cultural and social activities that take place there.

The tour begins at the designated point and we will tour the surroundings of the stadium to appreciate how the atmosphere builds as the fans arrive. Then we will enjoy a long side seat of a game with all the condiments that folklore and culture that only Argentine football can offer you.

More than 40 football fans have experienced the Velez Matchday with us!

Velez Sarfield Copa de la Ligua fixture 2024 is now available! ! We are open to questions regarding your upcoming visit to Buenos Aires!

Great Experience at Velez Sarsfield with Juan

We had a great football experience with Juan. He provided frequent communication leading up to the event. Juan picked us up at our Airbnb, drove me and my family to the neighborhood near the stadium. We ate some excellent Argentine pizza and beer at one of the best pizzerias in the city, Fortin. It was an authentic barrio experience. We had great conversation, then went to the stadium. We visited the fan shop and then met up with other fans. Unfortunately, Velez lost, but the atmosphere was fantastic with enthusiastic fans. He drove us back to our door at the end of the night. He continued to send us great recommendations via text for restaurants and experiences. He's a kind and attentive host. The entire experience was easy and very enjoyable. Gracias Juan!

Velez - Central Cordoba (21-3-2023) 4-0 :)

Had a very nice experience at Velez. The host, Juan, is very friendly and easy to contact by phone / whatsapp. This made the experience very good organized. Before the game we had some beers at a supportersbar near the stadium. Juan has a passion for football which makes him the perfect host. Had a great experience. Thanks again Juan!

Good times at Velez

Ramiro was an excellent host, he is super knowledgeable about all things football and Buenos Aires and I can highly recommend seeing a match with him. The trip to Velez was a very local experience, which is exactly what you're looking for when attending a football match in Argentina.

Ramiro is a great guide. I was met at the hotel, then off to the ground via the metro/bus picking up somebody else on the way. We had a couple of beers before heading to the match. Our seats were good, on the side in the middle of the second tier. After the match we stopped off for a choriopan then into a taxi and back to the hotel. I had an excellent time, definitely recommend visiting some of the clubs you might not have heard of in Buenos Aires (I hadn’t realised there was so many!!!).

Best Homefans Host! Ramiro is a great guy, he knows everything about the football in buenos aires, from his team River Plate until all the small clubs in lower divisions. You can feel his passion for football and he is a football mastermind. If i have the chance to visit buenos aires again, i would book again a tour with Ramiro.

Thanks a lot

Very good organization, a big thank you to Juan for the pre-game, the ticket (for a game very difficult to access) and the return. Nothing to complain about, everything was very good!

Great Experience

I attended the game against River in the Copa Libertadores and the atmosphere was incredible. The hosts Juan and Ramiro made the experience very easy and enjoyable, we got food before the game and local transport there and back.
