We’re taking 12 people from all different backgrounds to explore and experience football in Buenos Aires together for ten days. We provide accommodation, match tickets, stadium tours and an unforgettable time. You can expect regular dinner parties, a lot of fun, happy hours, Argentinian steaks and unreal football experiences. From the moment you arrive, you will experience everything Buenos Aires has to offer.
Not only do we spend countless hours planning the best itineraries, but we also try to curate groups of similar travelers to give everyone the best experience possible. We even send out a roster of everyone on the trip so you know who your travel companions will be for your time in Argentina.
These are not pre-scripted, every minute scheduled “group tours.” We don’t script. We plan. So you don’t have to. And then we have a really, really good time. You can expect chill vibes, new friends and great times. We run each trip as if we were traveling with our own group – because, by the end of it, we are.
”Both trips I joined with Homefans, Old Firm and Ultimate Argentina were very well organised. Top organisation and a very good vibe on trips. I can totally recommend it for every fan. Thanks Homefans!” Stijn De Ruyck
It features a great mix of futbol, sightseeing, scenery, relaxation, food, people – basically, you name it, we have thought of it. However, the real choice is yours. Join the group for some activities every day or plan something bespoke. We can arrange your dream Argentina itinerary at any time to suit you and adapted to your requirements as necessary. Just let us know if you’d like a little more of this or a little more of that, and we will see it done.

You will be picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel for the duration of the stay. This hotel is located beautifully in the city center of Buenos Aires. At the hotel, you will meet the rest of the group, gather with our trip manager for a few beers and prepare ourselves for an amazing football experience in Buenos Aires.
After an early breakfast, we’ll head to La Boca for some sightseeing and some delicious steaks to start our adventure the proper way. We will visit the famous Caminito, the colorful houses, La Bombonera and have a delicious steak in a very traditional restaurant. After lunch, you can join us for a walk around Puerto Madero, one of the nicest places in the city. Afterward, you can relax and in the night, guess what? Beers, wines and steaks!
MATCH DAY! Get ready for the first match of the trip, it’s going to be a special one. In the morning, we’ll head to the well known Recoleta’s Cemetery, where famous people from Argentina are buried, including Eva Peron. Then, we’ll head back to the hotel to change some clothes and get ready for the first match of the weekend in La Bombonera!
It forces you to look up. You take a step back, wondering what it all means. At that moment, staring high into the Buenos Aires sky, you realize you’ve made it. You’ll tick off your bucket list and watch a match of Boca Juniors against Banfield in the mythical La Bombonera together with locals, a once in a lifetime experience.
Before the match, we’ll head to the famous pizzeria El Cuartito for an amazing pre-match experience with beers and plenty of food. You’ll meet people from different locations, all like-minded fans. Afterwards, we’ll go with our private transport to La Bombonera to experience a home match of Boca Juniors.
Another day of football. Why not? In the morning, we’ll take you through the main football neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, visiting and getting to know the history and stadiums of Boca Juniors, Huracán, San Lorenzo, Argentinos Juniors and River Plate.
Argentinian football is dominated by derbies or clásicos. The capital, a city of 14 million people, is both the centre of life in Argentina and its footballing heart. Local clásicos are numerous. Boca vs River may divide the whole country, but Independiente v Racing – third and fourth in terms of the fanbase – is the most intense derby in Buenos Aires. Today, we’ll experience the Avellaneda derby together with locals. Be prepared for an amazing football experience in Avellaneda.
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. Nothing else. Learn more about the derby in our blog here.
Meet your guide, Pedro
One of the most important things about any trip is having the right local knowledge. You’ll be safe in the hands of our trip manager, who knows the streets of Buenos Aires and the culture better than you know the palm of your hand. Our local guides and especially, Pedro, is an absolute superstar! Every person that goes on a trip with Pedro tells us how much value he added to their experience. One of our travelers commented that it was like “with a good friend who has invited you to his home country”.
“Pedro was very reliable, super committed to showing us as much futbol as possible and above all, a ton of fun! We all wished we could extend for a few days and some of us already booked our next trip with Homefans”
