  • 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.

  • It is a nice stadium where I always see my Tricolor, Ecuador play! The prices are well accessible and friendly people! There is always selling delicious empanadas de morocho!
