4.2
The Estadio José Amalfitani is a stadium located in the Liniers neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina, near Liniers railway station. The venue is the home of the Argentine Primera División club Vélez Sársfield and is also known as El Fortín de Liniers or Vélez Sarsfield.The original, temporary stadium was built between 1941 and 1943 in wood, and the current facility was built in cement between 1947 and 1951. It was renovated and enlarged 26 years later in preparation for the 1978 FIFA World Cup. The stadium has a capacity of 49,540 spectators, although it does not provide seating for all of them like most Argentine stadia.The José Amalfitani Stadium is also the national stadium for the Argentina national rugby union team (Los Pumas). Although the team plays test matches throughout the country, their highest-profile tests are usually held here. The newly formed Argentine Super Rugby team, Jaguares, are playing its home games at the stadium.Early HistoryBefore buying the terrain to build the stadium, Vélez Sársfield played their home matches on rented grounds in the neighboring Villa Luro section. The original grounds earned the nickname El Fortín in 1932, for the team's strength playing at home.

    It is without a doubt the best stadium in the city. You can see from any angle. It is easy to reach both by car as public transport since there are many bus lines and train up to shoot. Security has always been the best. without doubts the teatro colon of stadiums

    I went to see a game of Velez x Huracán. Very nice experience, the stadium is easy to reach by bus, both to go back. On occasion, I paid 200 pesos on input, purchased at the box office of the stadium just before the game starts.

    The best stadium of the city, and is the club Atlético Vélez Sársfield. It is the most comfortable, looks good from all sides. It has good access to enter and to exit. Stamina Velez!
