Do you want to buy tickets to see a match of Boca Juniors? Let’s keep the story short: it’s almost impossible. However, there is a way that a tourist can buy a Boca Juniors ticket.

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?

Since this year I have been in contact with Nicolas who organizes football experiences in Buenos Aires. This includes the tickets to the game, hotel pick-up and drop-off, and a guide for during the game. To make it easier, I created a page to send your request and he will get in contact with you. Click here to the page.

However, there are also a lot of scamming practices on the market. High prices, fake tickets, cancelations, … So watch out! It is not easy to get a football ticket on your own. First, 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, since shortly I am in contact with Nicolas who organizes football experiences in Buenos Aires. Click here to the page.

Other option is that 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 is well trusted where you can buy tickets for Boca Juniors. I don’t trust Viagogo.

Furthermore, be aware that it’s known that fake tickets are going around!

If you can’t buy tickets for Boca Juniors, I can advise on taking a tour in La Bombonera. It’s a guided tour through the stadium and the museum. A must-do for Boca Juniors fans. Book your ticket online to skip lines.

Visit the Boca Juniors stadium

Watching live a game of the Boca Juniors is truly amazing. As a tourist, you need to be very lucky to get a ticket. But I can recommend you visit La Bombonera stadium! Daily you can visit the stadium and get a tour. Some guides speak English, and during the one-hour tour, you will get a great impression of the club. I went more than once to the stadium for the tour with family and friends and never got bored.

Below I present you the option to visit River Plate’s stadium and Boca Juniors during one tour. Or you can just go directly to La Bombonera to get a ticket. A waiting line can occur.

My roots in Buenos Aires started as a tourist. After some great adventures in Argentina, I moved in 2017 to the metropolitan city of Buenos Aires. I felt a need for correct and honest information for tourists. That's why I love to write to you. Sharing my discoveries in Buenos Aires. I hope you enjoy the city as much as I do! Buenos Aires ❤️

  1. I would recommend purchasing tickets in advance if possible. The closer to the game, the more expensive the tickets will be, but it’s worth it to avoid the long lines and crowds.

  2. Just wanted to say thank you! We were really nervous after reading about how difficult it was to get tickets to a Boca juniors match. Landingpadba were wonderful! Funny guides, well organized and great seats! Muchas gracias!! Which tango show do you like the best?

  3. I got tickets from Wander Argentina as a surprise for my hubby for his birthday. They were cheaper than anywhere else and amazing seats by the field.

  4. Hi Glenn! Thank you for honestly stating, that it is “impossible” to get the ticket for mens matches. But what about womens team? Are there higher chances for a tourist? Do you have any idea how can one get there? Thanks!

    • Hi Karel, I’m not really informed about the womens team. I will try to get some info and updates as soon as possible.

      Hi George, thank you for visiting our website and welcome to Buenos Aires. Getting tickets for Boca Juniors is difficult. I would suggest contacting Landingpadba. This is not a guarantee for getting the tickets. At this moment there are no other ways. Have a pleasant stay in Argentina 😉 Cheers.

      Hi Bruce, travelers contacted us with their review about Viagogo. Often we receive the story of fake tickets or cancellation at the very last moment. Therefore, the chance of a valid ticket and that you will actually see the game is very low.

  6. Is there other trusted companies that sell tickets for Boca matches? Thank you

      Hi Roger, the only trusted way at this moment is Landingpadba. Cheers!
