Day 1 - Welcome to Buenos Aires!
Day 1 - Welcome to Buenos Aires!

Be prepared for the most intense and exciting football experiences of your life!
The city is a mixture of 4 components that makes life so special: Their passion for fútbol (and worship for their idols such as Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Román Riquelme), the nightlife full of great clubs and bars (we’ve been there, and believe, it is THE city that never sleeps) and the pleasure for eating great food and drinking wine!

Today is gathering day, people from all over the world will arrive today at different times. Regardless of that, we have arranged an airport transfer for all of you. A driver's assistant will be outside the customs area with a sign with your names, near the McDonalds in the main hall.

If you arrive in the afternoon, check-in and room will be ready. For arrivals in the morning, we will do our best to accommodate you, but please bear in mind will be upon availability. For the rest of the day, you can take it easy and recover from your long travels. At night, we will organize a steak, beer and wine welcome dinner!

Day 2 - Get to know the city
Day 2 - Get to know the city

Today will be dedicated to getting to know the city more and have a nice and relaxed city tour through the main sights. We will walk at Caminito in Barrio de Boca, Boca Juniors colourful neighbourhood pack with amazing steaks restaurants, tango shops, a Maradona famous double and of course, La Bombonera! In the last time, our Dutch travellers got to meet Ronald Koeman in front of the stadium!

Then, we will talk through Puerto Madero, a posh area where the river cross and has a lot of bars to hang out for a beer in the afternoon! After that, our local host will take our group to the Recoleta Cemetery, well-known attraction because of the size and important personalities buried over there.

At night, do you fancy some steaks (of course) and wine? We will organize a group dinner!

Day 3 - Boca Juniors Matchday Experience & La Bombonera Stadium Tour
Day 3 - Boca Juniors Matchday Experience & La Bombonera Stadium Tour

PLEASE NOTE - YOUR BOCA JUNIORS MATCHDAY EXPERIENCE MAY BE MOVED TO ANOTHER DAY IN THE MATCH SCHEDULE BASED ON MATCH SCHEDULE

Dale Dale Bocaaaaaaaaaa!

The moment you all be waiting for. It is Boca Juniors day!

Get ready for the most intense day of your lives. Make sure you have a full breakfast at the hotel and stretch your legs because it will be a long walking day. First of all, we will head straight to Barrio de Boca and get inside the club's iconic stadium, La Bombonera. You will have e a guided tour through the stage of today's game and get to know the behind the scenes and curiosities regarding the mystic ground.

After the tour, we will stop by a local and authentic Boca Juniors restaurant to have a "parilla" or "asado", an Argentinian Traditional Barbecue. Bring down the bottles of Quilmes and let's have fun! Your guide will be telling and sharing stories about the club, the rivalry with their arch enemies River Plate and get yourselves ready for the match!

The club we'll be supporting is Boca Juniors - who are known as the Xeneize or Bosteros. Boca is the most famous and widely supported team in Argentina and probably all of Latin America, also internationally well-known. They are the only team to have never been relegated from the top division and are synonymous with Argentinian greats like Diego Maradona and Juan Roman Riquelme. They hold 6 Libertadores Cups and one of their greatest achievements was winning the 2000 Intercontinental Cup against Real Madrid's Dream Team (Figo, Raúl, Casillas, Roberto Carlos, McManamann, etc.).

And if that wasn't enough... Boca is the recent champion of the local league! In an epic definition, they got the leadership of the league in the last game, leaving in 2nd place River Plate! So there might be celebrations, songs and flags about the new title.

After being warmed up, we will be ready for some action. Our local guides will distribute your tickets and escort you to your gate. The stadium is always full and sold out, so we will hold our group tight and make our way to the seats. Once there, just make sure you enjoy the chants of "La 12", Boca Juniors well-known Ultras and get ready for the BEST day of your lives!

Day 4 & 5 At Leisure for optional activities
Day 4 & 5 At Leisure for optional activities

These are free days - but your local host will be able to recommend cultural tours and make bookings for you. You could visit Maradona's house or the Argentinos Juniors museum. Or visit Pope Francis' beloved San Lorenzo. You may, based on your dates, be able go to some other matches.

Day 6 - River Plate, Racing Club, San Lorenzo or Independiente Matchday Experience

PLEASE NOTE - THIS MATCHDAY EXPERIENCE MAY BE MOVED TO ANOTHER DAY, WE WILL CONFIRM THE FINAL SCHEDULE WHEN FIXTURES ARE ANNOUNCED.

Another day, another unforgettable Buenos Aires football match.

Today may be River Plate, Racing Club, San Lorenzo or Independiente. Our destination managers will study the fixtures and decide what would be the most exciting matches for you to attend.

Whichever match you attend you will get the full matchday experience. We will head to an area where the home fans gather to enjoy some beers and a burger and soak in the carnival-like pre match experience. Then our host leads us to the stadium where we take our seats for 90 minutes of pure football joy.

Day 7 (Optional) - Trip to Rosario and Newells Old Boys
Day 7 (Optional) - Trip to Rosario and Newells Old Boys

PLEASE NOTE - THIS OPTION CAN BE INCLUDED ON ANY FREE DAY IN THE ITINERARY IF SCHEDULES PERMIT. WE WILL SEND FULL DETAILS WHEN FIXTURES ARE RELEASED.

We suspect to say, but this may be your best day in Argentina! At least the past travellers have said that. As an extra matchday experience, you will have the chance to make a road trip from Buenos Aires to Rosario to watch Newells Old Boys, get to know the behind the scenes and what football is like for them. Can't get any better than that?

In the early morning, around 8:00, we will meet in your hotel and bus ride to Rosario, with one pit stop on the motorway. Arriving there, a quick visit to the Monumento a la Bandera (Flag Monument), the city's most famous landmark.

In the afternoon, around 13-14h, a private Stadium Tour with early insider access to the Cancha before it closes for pre-game preparations.

After that, full lunch at Escauriza restaurant. Rosario is famous for its river fish Boga, Pacú Pacú and Surubí, and this is one of the best places to try them! There's also a traditional Argentine meat option if you prefer. The menu includes a starter, dessert and unlimited beer/soft drinks. Wine and any other drink is extra.

Around 16:00. we will visit the Bellavista and Malvinas complexes. The former is where the Newell's first team train, the latter is where the underage players play - and incidentally, a certain Lionel Messi is still the all-time top-scorer!

At 19:00 the pre-match game starts with beers in the park. Newell's Marcelo Bielsa stadium is also known as the Coloso del Parque (Colossus in the Park), as it is located in Parque Independencia, right in the middle of the city. This makes it even better to enjoy the pre-game atmosphere. If you are still hungry you can grab a choripán or bondiola (pork) sandwich and a beer.

Before the match, on the way in you can browse the NOB club shop before taking your seat in the same ground where Maradona played for 1 season, Bielsa managed for 2, and Messi will one day return to...

The stadium is always full of capacity and you can expect an amazing atmosphere! When it finished, it is time to go home and let your adrenaline crash on the bus home. We expect arrival at 4 am.

Day 9 (Optional) - Trip to Montevideo and Huracán
Day 9 (Optional) - Trip to Montevideo and Huracán

PLEASE NOTE - THIS OPTION CAN BE INCLUDED ON ANY FREE DAY IN THE ITINERARY IF SCHEDULES PERMIT AND BORDER RESTRICTIONS PERMIT. WE WILL SEND FULL DETAILS WHEN FIXTURES ARE RELEASED.

Today we have the chance to finish in style!

In the morning, we recommend taking the 2:30 hours early ferry to Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. The city is small but with a vibrant atmosphere, home of amazing steaks, wines, the beautiful large avenues surrounded by many restaurants and bars and of course, football.

Montevideo is home of two giants in the South American football scenery: Peñarol and Nacional. From a sight to another, you can see graffiti and paintings representing both clubs, which makes the city very colourful. What definitely worth is to pay a visit at Estadio Centenário - stage of the first World Cup Final in 1930 and the Football Museum. Entrance costs around 5 euros. Another stadium that you can definitely go to is the Estadio Gran Parque Central, home of Nacional. Built-in 1900, is the oldest in South America.

The grand finale is the visit to Estadio Campeón del Siglo, home of Peñarol. Renovated in 2016, the arena is absolutely beautiful and very scary for the opponents. 40,000 hinchas supporting the black and yellow colours turns into a hell for other teams. You definitely wanna go there!

Day 9. Huracan, Argentinos Juniors or Banfield Matchday Experience
Day 9. Huracan, Argentinos Juniors or Banfield Matchday Experience

FAQs

Will the stadiums be open in 2021/22? At what capacity?

Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be.  However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.

Will I need to prove I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this.  Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements.  Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone away- should I still book?

We believe so, we all need something to look forward to.  But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. 

 

You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date depending on your destination.

Where in the stadiums will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

 

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Can children / young adults join the tour?

If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. Simply make your booking as normal and get in touch with us to arrange this.

Ultimate Argentinië met Homefans

Inmiddels 4x met jullie op stap geweest. Het begon allemaal in maart 2019. De reis naar Buenos Aires met Home Fans. Iets wat ik als klein kind al heel graag wilde. Voetbal in Zuid-Amerika. Zelf had ik al wedstrijden in Brazilië meegemaakt, jaren daarvoor. Maar het gemak dat de wedstrijd tickets geregeld zijn maakte het voor mij een stuk eenvoudiger. Dus mijn eerste trip met Home Fans Argentinië. Met een klein groepje hebben 10 dagen vele wedstrijden en stadions bezocht. De eerste avond in de stad met elkaar een drankje gedaan. /en de volgende dag stad Boca Jr`s op het programma. Boca – San Lorenzo. Volgende dag Independiente – Aldosivi. Daarna Argentinos Jr`s – Velez Sarsfield. Omdat Home Fans een week had geboekt waarin ook wedstrijden uit de Copa Libertadores gespeeld werden, konden we ook doordeweeks naar het voetbal. Op dinsdag naar Boca Jr`s – Tolima uit Peru. Nu met uitpubliek. De volgende dag naar San Lorenzo tegen Junior uit Colombia. De volgende ochtend gingen we met de boot naar Montevideo Uruguay. Hier gingen we ook een wedstrijd bezoeken. Namelijk Penarol tegen San Jose (Bolivia). Na een nachtje geslapen te hebben gingen we de volgende ochtend terug naar Buenos Aires. Dit was een vrije dag, zonder voetbal. En nu begon het competitie voetbal weer. Dus op vrijdag naar Racing Club, die had theoretisch kampioen kunnen worden die wedstrijd. Ze traden aan tegen Belgrano. Racing won wel, en werd een week later kampioen van Argentinië. Dit was tevens de laatste wedstrijd van deze trip. 7 wedstrijden in 10 dagen. Een hele mooie ervaring. Met leuke en een goede gids. Tussendoor veel vrije tijd, om de stad te verkennen!

Experience of a lifetime

Went twice with Homefans. Football at its best. The most passionate football culture on Earth, in an unbelievable city of Buenos Aires. Visited multiple games, stadiums, and football neighbourhoods on both trips. Boca Juniors as a must and Racing Club left me speechless. Homefans even made it happen for us to watch a home match of San Lorenzo among the ultra supporters, in the safest and smoothest way possible. Well done Homefans! Not to mention our day trip to Montevideo and the Peñarol game in Libertadores we watched there. Also had a sufficient amount of free time to explore the city by myself, and made some new friends among the fellow travellers. Brilliant trip, can't wait to come back for my Argentina hat-trick. Shout out to the local hosts as well! Cheer!
