Would you like to be discovering the early rise of Diego Amando Maradona in Buenos Aires right now? Join lifelong Argentinos fan, Tomas, on a virtual tour through the place where it all started for Diego Armando Maradona in El Paternal without the crowds and with a front seat view from the comfort of your home.

A stadium in La Paternal, not far from the center of Buenos Aires which Argentinos Juniors call home was the first place where Maradona started his career. Their stadium is named Estadio Diego Armando Maradona, with a plaque at the main entrance reading: “The best player of all time made his career debut in this stadium on October 20, 1976.” Discover the story and life of Diego Armando Maradona during this virtual tour in the neighborhood where it all started for Diego. Diego Maradona’s time with Argentinos Juniors began when he was eight.

Maradona’s rise to prominence with Argentinos Juniors happened remarkably fast. Within the space of a few years, he rose from the lowest youth ranks to the senior team. On 20 October 1976, still only 15-years-old, the young, diminutive Diego Maradona made his debut for Argentinos Juniors’ first-team against Talleres de Córdoba.

“Argentinos Juniors is my home. Every time I hear the name of the stadium, I get shivers down my spine,” said Diego. I will take you through El Paternal and we will visit different football murals and the house of Diego Amando Maradona. Learn about his early days as a professional footballer and what his legacy means to people in Argentina. This experience is 100% online. While you are at home, your host will connect with you from their city via a link that will be provided to you. For this tour, your host will be out in the city showing you live scenes through their camera. All you have to do is get your computer ready, have a proper internet connection, and enjoy your tour in a comfy setting. The online experience starts at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET

Beautiful Morning with D10S

Thoroughly enjoyable visit with Tomas and Gonzalo! With great commentary, videography and wifi connection, it was as close to being at La Paternal in person. Loved how Tomas brought the strong connection between the neighbourhood and Diego alive. As Diego said, AAAJ changed his life, but he also changed the fate of AAAJ! The murals and sanctuary were real highlights -showing the passion of the community, and how art and football come together beautifully! Cant wait for the Museum Tour!

Great tour about D10S

It was a great tour! The guide had great stories and showed us a lot of special paintings of Diego with all the different stories behind each mural. Quality of the sound and video was also good.

Immersive Tour and Fantastic Tour Guide

Tomas articulated his full spectrum of Maradonaism throughout this immersive tour which took us around the periphery of the Argentinos Juniors stadium and into the streets of a sunny Buenos Aires, a welcome break from lockdown in dreary London, great job guys!

Football Culture at its best

Tomás is definitely a book if knowledge. A 90 min masterclass on what Diego Maradona means to the Argentinians and to the fans of Argentinos Juniors. Great storytelling combined with a live visual immersive experience. Highly recommended!
