(4.6/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
The Estadio Olimpico Pascual Guerrero is a stadium in Santiago de Cali, Colombia which is named to honor the poet Pascual Guerrero. The stadium and the sports complex that surrounds it were, from the 1950s to the 1970s, one of the finest and most modern sports complexes in Latin America, and led to references of Cali as the "Sports Capital of America".The "Pascual", as its inhabitants usually call their stadium, was near the now defunct Stadium Galilee in the Versailles neighbourhood, where the first national athletics competition was held in 1928. The Pascual is still an important venue for domestic and international sporting events.With renovations made for the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Colombia and additional suits and sky boxes the stadium's capacity was reduced to 35,000 people. It is currently the home of América de Cali, and was the home of Deportivo Cali until 2007 when they moved into a new stadium, Estadio Deportivo Cali, becoming the first Colombian football team to own its own stadium.HistoryIn the year 1935, the poet Pascual Guerrero asked the department to build a stadium on the grounds that the offering. On 20 July 1937, construction was completed, and the facility opened with the name "Estadio Departamental". President Alfonso López Pumarejo was present when the stadium was inaugurated with a quadrangular tournament between the countries of Argentina, Cuba, Mexico and Colombia. The opening of the stadium coincided with celebrations to mark the fourth centenary of the founding of Cali. Subsequently, on November 4, 1957, the government of the Valle del Cauca ceded to the Universidad del Valle the lands that comprise the entire sports complex, a gift ratified by the Ministry of Government.

  • Is well worth to visit it if you have the possibility of doing so, is a stadium that is mostly with comfortable chairs to attendees, good bathrooms and decent food options. If going to go to some event sports that not is football can attend to any town, for this last is recommended attend to a locality of high price, are more safe, and have enough care to the out of there because is can turn something unsafe the sector.
