  • Watched a game of Bolivar here. Good atmosphere, but a very old stadium.
  • Great when there's a football match on involving one of the two big local clubs: Bolivar (La Academia) or The Strongest (Tigre). Especially great when these two play the local derby. Don't expect a quality match, but do expect both teams and their fans to give it their all in typical South American fashion.
  • Lots of food as well as entertainment for the family. The place has a marvelous landscape dorm you to observe.
  • Once a Monument the stadium has not been well kept. non the less, enjoying a futbol match between either of the local teams (Bolivar or The Strongest) is always something to do. If you are in town for "Clasico Paceño" then you must attend. More than the game the crowd makes it special
  • Very god atmosphere😊 Greetings from Denmark in Scandinavia (Europe)
