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.

  • Always flawless, sure, the only one which is can attend with kids and family also is the best stadium for concerts

  • Unfortunately the Velez Sarsfield stadium is well away from the center of Buenos Aires, with no access via subway, so recommend going by taxi and on a game without much importance, because the organized supporters of the home team is reputed to be very quarrelsome.

  • We went to see my wife and kids to the Pumas against the All Blacks. Beautiful, no words. The Organization was great, and the stadium is really wonderful. It has bathrooms and places to eat and enjoy the show.
