  • Since 1926 it is home of the biggest football club in Rosario, it is property of Rosario Central Football Club. Awesome stadium with a capacity around 43000 people seating. Located just a few meters from the Parana River - The Giant of Arroyito was one of the stadiums used for the 1978 World Cup won by Argentina. Try to get into a home match to experience its fascinating vibration from the fans and the Parana perfume that occasionally gets into El Gigante.
