Are you ready to embark on a journey that will leave you with unforgettable memories? Buenos Aires has been the beating heart of global football for as long as we can remember, and we’re excited to offer you a new variation of our best-selling tour for 2023/2024.

But that’s not all – this year, we’re taking things up a notch by including days in nearby Montevideo, Uruguay, home to football giants Nacional and Penarol. With a population of three million, Uruguay has produced some of the world’s finest footballers and consistently competes at the highest level. And with this tour, you’ll get to immerse yourself in the country’s football culture like a true local.

In Buenos Aires, every game is a national event that commands unparalleled attention. You’ll attend two match day experiences, one of Boca Juniors or River Plate and another for Independiente, Racing Club, or San Lorenzo. But the real highlight is Montevideo, located just a two-hour ferry ride from Buenos Aires. You’ll spend two days exploring the city’s football scene, including attending an authentic matchday experience, where you’ll indulge in delicious traditional barbecue, meet local supporters, and learn more about Uruguay’s football history.

You’ll also get to explore the Estadio Centenario, a national postcard and a myth of ancient football. This historic stadium was built in 1930 for the First World Cup of football and still maintains its original structure. Here, you’ll be able to explore the entire football collection and memorabilia from the Uruguayan Football Association and immerse yourself in the authentic temple of football.

Our South American trips are designed to give you an experience of a lifetime – you’ll get to visit amazing football clubs, explore stunning stadiums, drink beers in the finest football bars, enjoy some of the world’s best steaks, discover the culture, and, most importantly, enjoy the best football experience of your life.

Itinerary

Important Disclaimer

The below Tour Program is an example of the activities that can be part of the trip. The days and experiences might changed closer to the dates.

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

Be prepared for the most intense and exciting football experience of your life! Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and home of some of the biggest football clubs in South America. For decades it was considered the most modern capital in the southern continent, comparable to other capitals in Europe.

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, if you had acquired the airport transfer (as an extra), a driver's assistant will be outside the customs area with a sign with your names, near the McDonalds in the main hall.

Day 2 - Buenos Aires City Tour
Day 2 - Buenos Aires City Tour

Today, you can focus on getting to know the city more and have a nice and relaxed city tour through the main sights. You will walk at Caminito in Barrio de Boca, Boca Juniors colourful neighbourhood packed 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, you can walk 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!
At night, do you fancy some steaks (of course) and wine? We can help you organise a group dinner!

Day 3 - Boca Juniors or River Matchday Experience
Day 3 - Boca Juniors or River Matchday Experience

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 day.

First, we will arrange your transport and meet by a local and authentic Boca Juniors spot in La Boca. 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 5 & 6 - Free Days - Possible other matches (Extra options)
Day 5 & 6  - Free Days - Possible other matches (Extra options)

Today is a free day to take in all you've seen so far. If schedules permit we may be able to get a Maradona Overdose and attend a stadium tour and match at the Argentinos Juniors stadium, called Diego Armando Maradona. As you may know, the club was Diego Maradona's first club - he was such an exciting prospect that the club gave him a house for his family at the age of just 15 to secure his signature.

The house has now been refurbished into an homage and we'll be visiting it to get a look up close at where 'Díos' (God), ate, slept and hopped out of his window during the night to go to the bathroom! After that, we will head closer to the ground to visit the fan-maintained museum of Argentinos Juniors. Over there, you will have the most amazing tour with unique memories from past glories and a lot of sections dedicated to Maradona.

Now it is time for the pre-match experience! We've booked a table in a local fan-base restaurant where a set menu will be waiting for you and of course, plenty of local beers! Around 1 hour before, we will go to our seats and feel the local atmosphere and amazing football.

You can also take part in any other game in the city across the First and Third Division as the Homefans marketplace offers a vast selection of authentic matchday experiences! Reach out to our team and we will help you decide the best option!

Day 7 - Argentina Matchday Experience (San Lorenzo, Vélez or Huracán)
Day 7 - Argentina Matchday Experience (San Lorenzo, Vélez or Huracán)

Imagine yourself in the stands, cheering for one of the greatest team, just behind the goal, where the heart of the party beats. Feel the exhilaration as you sing ,and embrace the intense atmosphere alongside fellow fans. This is your chance to understand the passion that drives people to watch an Argentinean Club.

But the journey doesn’t stop there. This Match Day Experience is more than just a game; it’s a day filled with football, culture, and history. As we walk through the footsteps of a club in Argentina, you’ll create memories that will last a lifetime.

Day 8 - Trip to Montevideo & Estadio Centenario Tour
Day 8 - Trip to Montevideo & Estadio Centenario Tour

In the morning, we will take an early ferry to Uruguay (not included in the price- you arrange this as an extra, our staff can help you pick the best option). The transportation could go directly to Montevideo or to Colonia to then go by bus to Montevideo. 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.

We will pay a visit at Estadio Centenario - stage of the first World Cup Final in 1930 and the Football Museum.

At night, we will help you book a table in one of the most traditional steak houses in the country if you wish!

Day 9 - Peñarol or Nacional Matchday Experience
Day 9 - Peñarol or Nacional Matchday Experience

Are you ready to experience Nacional or Peñarol?

We will watch a match at Estadio Gran Parque Central, home of Nacional, built-in 1900, is the oldest in South America or 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.

Any of them, we will have the best experience!

Important disclaimer: due to the Uruguay fixture last hour modificactions. Peñarol or Nacional game could be modified for an away game or a different team.

Day 10 - Back to Buenos Aires and Optional Activities

The trip manager will be on hand at a whatsapp message or a call throughout your stay to help you arrange any extra activities you’d like to book, and also to help you arrange airport transfers when the time comes.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people allowed on the trip 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 I change the included matches?

The included matches are final in order to keep the group together – they have been handpicked by Homefans and the local hosts to ensure the best experience.  However,  there are extra matches that could be added throughout your stay – we will be in touch to let you know about the best deals!

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

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

The Ultimate Argentina and Superclásico trips have a 3* hotel as a standard.  For a hotel upgrade, please get in touch with Homefans and we will assist you in this matter at an extra cost.

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.

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!

The trip was excellent. It was so well organised with all my transfers taken care of and travel between both cities. All the hosts were fantastic, so approachable and friendly. At each of the matches they helped you through the turnstiles and remained with you for the full game. I would recommend this trip to any big football fans. Boca and River were special stadiums.

Epicenter of football!

The tour was well organized despite that the matches are only announced a few days before kick-off by the Argentina football association. This is something you have to bear in mind with matches in South America There is plenty of time to do sightseeing on your own and visit extra football matches. Transport from the airport to the hotel + football matches and vice versa was well arranged. The hosts were all very friendly, passionate and had a lot of knowledge about the history of the club. The organization was available via the app for questions and constantly keeping you up-tl-date. Only thing that can be improved was the breakfast at the hotel. The quality was good, but the quantity was minimum. We could only order 1 small drink and 1 dish as breakfast. Overall, the trip was well worth it and we had an amazing time!

My first experience with Homefans in Argentina and Uruguay

This was my first experience with Homefans. We visited 6 games in Argentina and went for a daytrip to Montevideo to do some stadium tours. The 6 games in Argentina were all simply amazing. Every host who went with us was very passionate about his/her football team and took the responsibilities for us to arrange the transfers, tickets and to give us a excellent Argentinian football game experience. The daytrip in Montevideo was also must to do. You travel the whole day through Montevideo with the host Liber and visit 3 very nice football stadiums in Montevideo. It was a very good experience with Homefans and they organisated everything really well!
