  • One of the most beautiful stadiums that has the country but to my point of view and should give you a hand extra has a unique location and think that if they invest in the can be a stadium icon in Latin america.

  • An undeniable see a party here is that simply Quito is 3000 metres above sea level. I.e., no hay quien stamina! Acclimated Ecuadorians are extremely agile beside somebody. The view is super good. Otherwise it's like any other stadium.

  • The stage is pretty bad with the structure very old and without maintenance. However, the atmosphere in stadiums like this is always very good.
