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.

  • ... and the Manya Dios created this stadium. Magnificent work for a country's economy very limited, but with a football history by almost no one surpassed. And Peñarol is the protagonist of its greatest achievements, to clubista level. Picture of village, gold and coal, is reborn each spring!

  • We visited the Stadium on the day of a Championship game very important: selection of Uruguay and Chile selection, you've seen was very busy (Street closed and to catch the tour bus at the end of the visit we had to walk to another Street). When we went in to visit the gates were still locked (and the queue outside was huge), then we could see the huge empty stadium is very nice. Can only visit the stadium who pays, where you have the right to visit the Museum as well.

  • 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.
  • Nothing like "home", for us manyas.
  • Manya for ever!!
  • Beautiful stadium

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.
