Delve into the world of one of Argentina’s top soccer teams on the Buenos Aires Behind-The-Scenes Soccer Tour. To join the tour please make your way to the meeting point at Tangol's Office (Florida 971, Shop 31). Close to this location, you will see the church where soccer legend Diego Maradonawed Claudia Villafane in a fabulously lavish ceremony in 1989.
Next, you will be taken to 'La Bombonera' ('the chocolate box'), celebrated stadium of The Boca Juniors. This famous soccer team was born on Monday 03 April, 1905, when five young boys from La Boca neighborhood got together at Solís Square with the dream of founding a football club. Little did they know that by doing so they were writing the first pages in the history of Argentina’s most popular soccer team!
The name Boca was taken from the team’s Buenos Aires neighbourhood (La Boca). The word ‘Juniors’ was added to give it an English tone and enhance its prestige.
Inside La Bombonera, you will visit the VIP seats, look at the pitch and see the terrace associated with the mythical 'player number 12'. You will also be shown a changing room dating from 1978 and will enter one of the stands from where you can view Diego Maradona’s Box.
Next, you will visit the 'Museo de la Pasión Boquense' (Boca’s Museum). Here you can learn all about the history of the club, including the evolution of its famous jersey, and find out about all its past players. You'll tour the trophies room, see a film that lets you experience how a Boca player feels when he goes out to the pitch and hear the story of the fabled 'player number 12' referred to above. You will also be shown the jerseys of two of the most important football players ever to play on the La Boca pitch.
When the visit to the museum is over, you will have some time at leisure to visit the shop and take some lunch (not included).
At the end of this fun 3-hour tour you will be returned to the initial meeting point.
