History and description
Estadio Ciudad de Lanús – Nestor Diaz Perez, often nicknamed La Fortaleza, officially opened on 24 February 1929, though it took another month for the first match, Lanus vs Platense (5-2), to be played at the stadium.
The stadium was initially not more than a few small bleachers around a pitch, but one year later construction of larger wooden stands started, and in the next years the stadium reached a capacity of about 30,000.
In the early 1960s, a first concrete stand was built, but for the next few decades few improvements were made.
Estadio Ciudad de Lanus got almost completely rebuild between 1990 and 2003, replacing the wooden stands with concrete stands. Since then, only minor improvements have been made to the stadium, including the construction of a roof in 2010.
How to get to Estadio Ciudad de Lanus
Estadio Ciudad de Lanus is located in the city of Lanus in the south of the Greater Buenos Aires metropolitan area. It lies about 13 kilometres south of the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires’ centre (microcentro) and about 16 kilometres south from the upscale Palermo and Recoleta areas further north.
