Medellin

Start your adventure with 6 days in Medellín.  Nestled in a fertile valley, Medellín’s rocky past needs no introduction and we will find out more during our time here; however we focus on the football and two of Colombia’s finest clubs; Deportivo Independiente Medellín (DIM) and Atlético Nacional.

Bogotá

We spend our last 5 days in the Andean city of Bogotá – one of the most high-altitude capitals in the world.  We have a matchday experience at the mighty Millionarios as well as a trip to Montserrate and a chance to play a traditional game of Tejo with locals.

In each city you will be with an expert local trip manager who is both an ambassador for their city and a passionate football fan – they will help you have a truly local, authentic experience.  Plus you will share this trip with a small group of like-minded football fans, creating an experience which is enjoyable, memorable and connected.

Itinerary

Day 1. Welcome to Colombia

We hope you are prepared for the trip of a lifetime. We have an amazing 11 days planned. But today is for meet and greet. We will pick you up from the airport and bring you to the hotel we have booked for the group where you can get to know your host and yellow travellers. In the evening we will head to a local bar for a welcome evening.

Day 2. City Tour

Explore this amazing city.

Day 3. DIM Matchday Experience or Envigado Matchday Experience

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

Today we will be joining the fans of Deportivo Independiente Medellin (DIM) for a matchday which promises to be fiery and colourful, Before the match your local hosts will take you to the area where the DIM fans congregate to soak in the pre-match party atmosphere

Day 4. Atletico Nacional or Envigado Matchday Experience

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

Another matchday. Today, along with 40,000 other fans we head to the Estadio Atanasio Girardot for a Atletico Nacional matchday – and we are going to make sure you have the full experience. We will meet up with the home fans to enjoy all the pre-match build up, along with some drinks and local food, before taking our seats for the main event.

Day 5. Medellin Sightseeing and Graffiti Tour

Today is all about getting under the skin of Medellín; we will take a sightseeing tour of the city and discover how it has transformed from one of the most dangerous cities on earth to one of the most forward-looking and creative.

One particular area of Medellín, a neighbourhood called Comuna 13, also known as San Javier, has the most tumultuous history of the city, once labelled the most dangerous community due to its astronomical homicide rates and its forced displacement of thousands of residents. It is now a redeveloped, vibrant area known for its street art.

Day 6. Day trip to Guatapé

No trip to Antioquia is complete without at least a day spent wandering through the colourful streets of Colombia's most colourful town. Guatapé is the perfect place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of Medellín. The main reason that people visit Guatapé is to climb the famous Rock of Guatapé – also known as El Peñol Rock – to enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding islands and lakes of the artificial Guatapé reservoir.

FAQs

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

You can do it if you wish.

You can also secure your spot with a deposit, and then pay the balance in up to two instalments no later than 60 days before you travel. In this way you can organise yourself and plan ahead with time!

What does a trip include?

A trip on the Homefans marketplace is a carefully hand-picked experience curated by Homefans and the local hosts in the destination to offer a unique sports experience through local eyes.

It usually includes the following:

  • Match Ticket
  • Local Host
  • Pre-Match Experience with local fans
  • Pre-arranged activities

In some cases more activities will be added or some will be omitted (and mentioned in the inclusions)

Where in the stadium 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 and local hosts work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats.

We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

We can always upgrade the seat location based on availability, at an extra cost. We do recommend that the group  stays together in the same area to get the most out of this experience, but if you would like to enquire about an upgrade, feel free to get in touch.

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!

How do you plan and execute your trips seamlessly?

The trips and activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals, and supervised and monitored by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have a peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

Can children / young adults join the tour?

Homefans is for everyone!

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

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep competitive prices,  the trips on the Homefans marketplace always offer prices based on 2 people sharing.

If you wish to stay on your own in a single room, you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. This can be found on the extras section at checkout and you can add it to the booking. You can also get in touch with us to arrange this.

Can I extend my stay / upgrade my hotel?

Yes, you can extend your stay by clicking on the EXTRAS section at checkout, choosing the number of extra nights you wish to extend your stay.

For a hotel upgrade, please get in touch with Homefans and we will assist you in this matter.

Can I cancel my trip if I cannot travel?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend this trip, we appreciate if you let us know with time in advance.

According to our Terms & Conditions , if you tell us 45 days before the trip starts, we can keep your deposit and transfer it to another future trip or use it as credit.  The deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Why are there local hosts on the trips?

Homefans was created to address a pain point we experienced quite often. You travel abroad to watch a sporting event, yet once you arrive, you still feel like an outsider, with a lack of knowledge around the destination and the event.

The local hosts on the Homefans marketplace address this issue by becoming the local link to your trip. They enhance the experience completely, and create that necessary human connection – and will surely become friends in the future!
