The Estadio Malvinas Argentinas is the largest stadium in Mendoza, fourth largest census metropolitan area in Argentina. It is owned and administrated by the Provincial Government, and has a seating capacity of over 40,000 spectators.HistoryArgentina was chosen as the host 1978 World Cup of the nation by FIFA in London, England on 6 July 1966, and Mendoza, as one of the largest cities in the countries, was selected as a venue. 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.

  • Stay behind the San Martin Park, but it is very difficult to find it open. On Matchday, notice the fans screaming of the bus arriving.

  • Just checking where the Springboks are playing
  • The stadium is pretty good but they have not improved the health service since they are very few for the number of people who come to this site. Beach access to the entrance doors are still uncomfortable despite made reductions. The income of people with disabilities in wheelchairs is by a single place and its location in the same way; should have more possibilities of income for the same in the different sectors of the stadium and of easy access. It is a very good stadium with a great capacity of people who could be improved much more.
