Estadio Regional de Antofagasta, officially Estadio Bicentenario Calvo y Bascuñan, is a multi-purpose stadium in Antofagasta, Chile. It is currently the home stadium of Deportes Antofagasta. The stadium was built in 1964 and has a maximum capacity of 21,178 spectators since its renovation in 2013. It was one of eight venues used for the 2015 Copa América.The stadium was built in 1964 by the Municipality of Antofagasta and the Regional Stadium Construction Committee (Comité Pro Construcción Estadio Regional). In 2009, the community of Antofagasta started an initiative to rename the stadium after Alberto Calvo Nieto and Miguel Bascuñán Pavez. In 2010, the Chilean government and Minera Escondida, a private mining company, decided to renovate the stadium. The renovation of the stadium started in 2011 and finished in 2013.The stadium has been a venue for the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship, Supercopa de Chile 2013, Copa Sudamericana 2013 and Copa América 2015.HistoryThe idea of building a stadium for the city was born in 1955, with the intention that it could function as host for the shield of the 1962 FIFA World Cup in Chile. The initiative was mainly led by two professionals from the city of Antofagasta, Miguel Bascuñán Pavez and Alberto Calvo Nieto, who formed the "Pro-Construction Committee" in 1958 with the aim of concretizing the project. It was obtained that it will be decreed by law (13.080 from the Ministry of the Interior of Chile) that the lands occupied by the then 'Club Hípico de Antofagasta' (Ridding Club) be owned by the municipality of Antofagasta for the construction of the stadium, which will be indemnified in accordance with the law, which Authorized the Municipality of Antofagasta to stipulate the amount to be paid to the 'Club Hípico' By expropriation, the agreement being effective on January 31, 1959 and specifying the action on April 23 of that same year. The amount decreed was 300.000.000 CLP.

  • On my trip to antofagaste I went out of the stadium. For my sortpresa door was open security personnel let us enter, think what so ever. We were in the field of play and banks alternate, a modern Stadium. Night lights outside.

  • Good meeting place for lovers of football. Headquarters of the copa America 2015 well located, with easy access and modern facade. Only visited by outside (was closed) say that your grass is a luxury for a city where water is scarce...

  • Great place. Wonderful and exciting
  • Normal Stadium. The acoustics in musical events is terrible. I have not attended to soccer. The seats after a while become uncomfortable. Good connectivity for public transportation.
