Estadio Centenario

Estadio Centenario

Built between 1929 and 1930, to commemorate the centenary of Uruguay's first constitution, the Estadio Centenario also played host to the first-ever FIFA World Cup final (which Uruguay won 4-2, against Argentina). Listed by FIFA as one of the world's 'Classic Stadia', the Estadio Centenario has become something of a Mecca for football fans, with thousands of tourists visiting each year to attend a game, or just to visit the fascinating (Football Museum), housed within the stadium itself. Visitors to Montevideo should do everything they can to attend an Atlético Peñarol home game at the Estadio Centenario - football, as the cliché goes, is a way of life in Uruguay - and watching a game in the midst of 90,000 passionate locals is an amazing cultural experience, that is sure to be cherished for the rest of one's life.
