Fútbol - Other Activity Cali - Colombia

Catching a fútbol game in any city in Colombia is nothing short of a religious experience. Hordes flock to the stadiums, screaming furious chants at the opposition while voicing praise on their side. Cali has two teams that call the Estadio Pascual Guerrero home. America de Cali (red) and Deportivo Cali (green) have their tribes of supporters—for your safety do not get the two confused! Perhaps the most extreme fútbol experience you can have is to go to a local game between the two bitter city rivals. You are advised to go with someone knowledgeable, since more than 40,000 fans show up to these games.

Location:

Calle 5, Cali


Cali, Colombia

Getting There

To get there, take any bus that runs down the Calle 5. Get off when you see the flags in front of the stadium.

Travel Tips:

If you are planning on seeing a match between Deportivo Cali and America de Cali then go along with a local who knows the ropes. Otherwise most games should be fairly straightforward. Take only the cash that you need to get into the stadium and enough to get home and possibly buy tickets out of the more vociferous areas of the stands.

Price Description:

Anything between $5 and $25

Relative price: Mid-Range

Travel Skills: beginner/easy.

You Need to Bring:

It’s best not to take valuables or large amounts of money with you. Do bring ID (photocopy of your passport).

Nearby across the Calle 5 there is the Parque del Perro with many restaurants and bars.
