Club: Argentinos Juniors | Opening: 1940 | Capacity: 24,800 seats
History and description
Estadio Diego Armando Maradona, then still called Estadio Argentinos Juniors, officially opened on the 27th of April 1940.
The stadium got extensively redeveloped in 2003 and at the same time got renamed in honour of Maradona, who had started his career at the club.
Estadio Diego Armando Maradona is located toward the west of the city of Buenos Aires, about 9 kilometres from the city centre (Microcentro) and 5 kilometres south-west from nightlife area Palermo.
One can get to the stadium with bus (colectivo) 146. Take the bus from the Av. Diagonal in Microcentro or from Sarmiento street west of Avenida 9 de Julio. Get off at the Av. San Martín corner Miguel Angel. The journey takes about an hour.
An alternative is colectivo 109, which can be taken from Avenida Cordoba. Get off at Gavilan corner Alvarez Jonte. The journey takes over an hour, and it will likely be quicker to take the 109 from metro station Angel Gallardo (line B).
From the Recoleta and Palermo areas one can take colectivo 110. Take it from Av. Las Heras or Av. Scalabrini Cortiz. Get off at Margariños Cervantes corner Gavilan.
Address: Gavilán 2151, Ciudad de Buenos Aires
