New Argentine stadium completed

New Argentine stadium completed

Tuesday 19th May 2020

A new stadium in Argentina has been completed ahead of the Copa America 2021.

The Estadio Unico is located in Santiago del Estero, around 650 miles north west of the capital Buenos Aires.

The stadium has cost $300m to build and has a capacity of 28,000. It will host one match at the rearranged Copa America 2021, with Uruguay scheduled to face Paraguay there in next year's competition.

The stadium is also being lined up as a potential venue for the 2030 World Cup, should a joint Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile bid be successful. If chosen, more work would need to be done to meet the minimum 40,000 capacity needed for a World Cup venue.
