  • In the stadium there is no Sports Museum, if you are a collector of pictures at the stadiums you could visit it without problem, speak with the Concierge or the person who cares and informally, usually always is open on business hours because there are people training. The stadium at the moment is somewhat deteriorated, however continues to be interesting to know the official headquarters of the football selection of the Ecuador.

  • I had the opportunity to go back and watch the game from Ecuador vs Brazil, although it has lost the Ecuadorian team looks a good show from the stands, the yellow Stadium and fans scream makes everything a great show.

  • 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.
