  • Unlike modern football stadiums around the world, the centenary preserves the history of the sport in the manner of the best days of Uruguayan football. Worth knowing!

  • Made a point of meeting the Centennial Stadium, the big story that he has a very important place in the history of Uruguay. For those who love football, it pays to know the stadium and the Museum.

  • One of the most important stadiums in the world, after all, was the scene of most of the first soccer World Cup, including the final. The stadium itself is abandoned. With cement bleachers (lowland) and without cover, offers no comfort to fans during games. But even knowing all that, made a point of visiting him throughout your importance.

  • Símbolo del fútbol mundial
  • Inaugurated in 1930, the first FIFA World Cup was played here. Considered monument and place of interest.
  • Worth watching a match there. It's historical the stadium anyway.
  • Amazing stadium home for urugay's national team
  • Great historical stadium, nice view up from the tower. Museum has a lot of cool stuff, but it's very messy.
