It is a dream of many football fans. Attend a match at La Bombonera. Boca Juniors plays its matches at the La Bombonera stadium and is located in the La Boca district in Buenos Aires. The stadium can accommodate around 49,000 people.
Due to many riots in the past, it is unfortunately no longer allowed in Argentina for supporters to visit away games.
How to buy tickets for Boca Juniors?
There are a lot of scamming practices on the market. High prices, fake tickets, cancelations, … So watch out! Why it’s almost impossible, you need to understand how the ticket sale works.
First of all: ticket sales were handed over to supporters’ groups, a few years ago. Residents subscribe themselves on a waiting list to get a Boca Juniors member card. The waiting time runs up to 6 years now!
However, often supporters don’t go to all the Boca games. It happens that a Boca Junior supporter has an agreement with a hotel or broker. If the supporter doesn’t go to a game, he lends his seasonal pass (member card) to the broker. Of course for a price.
And the story continues. The broker adds a percentage, and so on.
On your own getting a ticket is hopeless, even impossible.
Are there other options?
Yes, you need to know a Boca Junior fan in person. And he/she is willing to lend the seasonal pass.
Or, you go by a broker, hotel or tourist organization. But prices per ticket vary between $160 USD and $400 USD. Landingpadba.com is one of the tourist agencies and well trusted. We don’t trust Viagogo.
Furthermore, be aware that it’s known that fake tickets are going around.
