The organizing committee, under supervision of the military dictatorship that ruled Argentina since 1976, proposed a new stadium to be built by the Cerro de la Gloria, in General San Martín Park and taking advantage of the topography of a natural depression located on the slopes of the hill. Beside the stadium itself, the project included new access roads, parking lots, a training auxiliar field and other complementary works.The construction began in 1976 and the Estadio Ciudad de Mendoza ("City of Mendoza Stadium") was opened on May 14th, 1978 with a friendly match between a team formed by players from Mendoza and another one with players from San Rafael. During June 1978, Mendoza hosted six Fifa World Cup matches, three first round matches and three second round matches. That same year Gimnasia y Esgrima de Mendoza became the first team from Mendoza to play a first division match at the stadium. Other teams from Mendoza that have reached first division and used the Malvinas Argentinas as home stadium since are Independiente Rivadavia, Club Atletico Huracan Las Heras, San Martín de Mendoza and Godoy Cruz.

  • you got that tourist bus that you will collect at the time, leaves you on a schedule that does not coincide with the guided tours, (until a little past noon), you arrive at the stadium and waits in a wasteland with small spaced trees, a water you sold, without place to escape! You can enter when is the time of the visit, a small museum oriented to the world 78, good. then visit locker room and field. But friends! It is a stadium, sell me a pin or a flag or a hat, are tourists, we are left with a thirst for junk food and liquid. SALIS of the stadium and also agrees that you busuqe the bus, then waiting 40 minutes more. do you want to walk? well from the front gate of the san martin Park Stadium, 1 hour and half walk uphill, and I swear that do not pass a bird to take
