I like this stadium so much. Because the stadium has four Grandstand separated by four lanes. The main one is the Olympic Tribune (and lower Platea known as Olympic), which is named so because the team had won two Olympic championships in a row (1924...More

This is totally not my thing but my soccer-playing preteen loved it and I loved that he loved it. We had a short stop there, snapped a few pics and moved on.

Estadio Centenario is the Athens School of football. The first ever World Cup final was played in this stadium and after 87 years, it is still standing on its legs strong. The graffitis on the wall and memorials should be examined carefully to understand this...More

If you are in Montevideo you must go visit the Estadio Centenario. The visit will take you about 1 hr if you do the whole tour including the tower and the museum. The building is old (built in 1930) but full of history. It was...More
