New Argentine stadium hosts first match

Thursday 4th March 2021

Argentina's newest stadium the Estadio Unico has hosted its first match.

The new 30,000 seater stadium will be used for this year's Copa America which Argentina is co-hosting with Colombia.

Located in Santiago del Estero in the far north of the country, the stadium is said to be one of the most technologically advanced in the country. It features 2 giant 14x8m LED screens, as well as restaurants, an interactive museum and underground parking for up to 500 cars.

The stadium cost around £12m to build and hosted its first match when River Plate beat Racing Club 5-0 in an Argentine Supercopa match.
