As the stadium filled up, and game time drew near, a beautiful cheerleader squad emerged onto the field. From half way across the field, it was abundantly obvious just how short and tight their uniforms were.

They proceeded to do a dance number that’d make any Colombian turn red. These were dance moves you’d never see in the USA.

The match was against Lunas. The Boca Juniors jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first half. With each new goal scored, the crowd erupted.

The super fans on the opposite end of the stadium sang their songs the whole match. Now I know where DC United’s Barra Brava got their name, songs, and spirit.

Buenos Aires.

I’d heard rumors over the years about the fans at Boca games. They’d shake the stadium, and occasionally throw urine or feces on the opponents’ fans.

For a variety of reasons, including the fact that it’s hard to get tickets if you’re not a card-carrying Boca fan (literally, they have ID cards), I decided to pay a premium for the group tour.

Boca Junior play at the Alberto J. Armando Stadium.
