Estadio Campeon del Siglo, Montevideo

4.3
Estadio Campeón del Siglo is a football stadium located in Bañados de Carrasco, Montevideo, Uruguay, and the home ground of Peñarol, current First Division champions. It has a maximum capacity of 40,000.The stadium is built with all FIFA standards taken into account, plus the possibility of a reform and an expansion in mind; thought of as possible host for a proposed 2030 FIFA World Cup by Uruguay.HistoryBackgroundProjects to own a stadium date back to the 20th century, but never managed to materialize. Although the club already owned the Estadio Contador Damiani (former Las Acacias) since 1916, it is currently not approved for Uruguayan Primera División matches by authorities, due to lack of security, and it is used by the club's youth divisions instead.The first project dates back to 1933, when the team presented a project to build a stadium near Montevideo's promenade, same place in which now the popular Teatro de Verano is found. Half a century later, in 1998, the club announced plans, presenting a real life model, of a stadium to be built in the Franklin D. Roosevelt park near Avenida Gianattassio, in Canelones. On the successive years, under the command of club president José Pedro Damiani, continuous projects were presented, which all planned for a 40 thousand seat stadium.

  • Newly built stadium by Penarol. Is in a neighborhood far from the Center, preferably by car. There are several large parking lots. Tickets must be purchased in advance at points of sale (are not sold at the stadium!). The experience is very interesting, especially for the passion of the crowd for your team. Although new, the stadium is not very comfortable, there is no cover and usually it's cold in the region. However, don't let go.

  • The best and only FIFA stadium in Uruguay. The Peñarol Campeón del Siglo, a must visit place when visiting Montevideo
  • This is the 1st world class stadium build in Uruguay since we build the estadio "Centenario" in 1930 opening the same on july 18th 1930 to celebrate 100 years of the declaration of the independence. Since then this is the FIRST and only other stadium capable of hosting a fifa or world class event. Or fruit of the biggest and oldest team in URUGUAY. C.A.P.O. C.C.R.R.U.C. 1891. Best thing ever.
  • Expectacular!
  • Nothing like "home", for us manyas.
  • Manya for ever!!

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
