  • I went several times and I could never get the best sound. Except Green day that rang 10. The bad thing was that the stage was very low, so in field is not nothing. The silver lining is that easily can be reached.

  • José Amalfitani, headquarters of Club Atlético Vélez Sársfield stadium is the stadium with better view of Argentina. Anywhere in the stadium in that one place can enjoy a perfect view. Strategically located metres from Avenida General Paz, this stadium is in addition to soccer, seat of the Argentine franchise of rugby, the Jaguars and the argentina National Rugby Union team, Los Pumas. It also houses a large number of concerts, so it makes this stage a very visited place. Inside the club, is you can enjoy a coffee in the cafeteria, purchase official merchandise in the store, admire the cups Velez making a great club or walking through the stands, sitting in an armchair and enjoy a great show.

  • 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

  • When it comes to recitals, if you are looking for fields, you'll need to go at least 2 hours earlier than programmed. Usually organization sucks. If not interested in field, then you will be fine
  • The stadium is nice. I though it would be bigger . Good thing: buses all around it. Bad thing: at night it could get a bit dangerous.
  • Very old, no seat backs, probably been ripped off by angry local fans, the amenities are not good
  • I couldn't visit the stadium because I'm not a member
  • Great. Many great events here...
