  • It looks impressive, the ideal would be to see it full to watch a match of Uruguay. Perhaps was somewhat neglected, it may be because the date in which I came to visit him. All forms belongs to the history of football.

  • Historic stadium. Walk around a stand and enjoy the museum for 5usd. Bargain
  • This is surely an important coliseum for any pure football fan to witness. Playing host to the first World Cup final, one can get a sense of occasion when stepping inside the centenario. The are also ample opportunities to relive many of Uruguay's other successes, such as the regular Copa America triumphs, as the trophy rooms and layout share a direct relationship with the positivity of those times.
  • This stadium is one of a kind, still bears it's old and classic architecture way back since 1930. A lot of history is attached to this stadium. Never to forget that it hosted the inaugural edition of World Cup..,!!
  • The stadium is surrounded by green areas. You will enjoy walking around.
  • Its the best soccer stadium that you are going to find here in Uruguay.
