  • Luckily I had the opportunity to see a party of the capital equipment, while Bolivian Football is not so spectacular... its environment and interests if they are. It is very interesting to know who is in a stadium that is highest in the world.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Stadium for big event, soccer field,
  • Very god atmosphere😊 Greetings from Denmark in Scandinavia (Europe)
  • Amazing place to watch Soccer
