Soccer is central to Argentine life. Yes, boys and girls. When I was 10, I was wise enough to choose Boca Juniors as my favorite team. I wasn’t aware how lucky I was in the first place to choose such a special team, but when I had the chance to go to Boca’s stadium, I certainly experienced some of the craziest and most touching feelings I’ve had in my life.

La Bombonera (“the chocolate box”), one of the most fascinating stadiums in the world, grants way more than a regular soccer experience. Colors, excitement, 49,000 fans driven by an unbeatable passion and commanded by “La Doce” (The 12th Man), the most renowned barra brava in the world—definitely an experience worth having.

I saw this graffiti once while walking to the stadium: La Bombonera no tiembla, late (La Bombonera doesn’t shake, it beats). Passion in motion, a unique venue only Boca fans can claim.
