Santiago Travel Guide

Soccer

Chile's most popular spectator sport is soccer, but a close second is watching the endless bickering among owners, trainers, and players whenever a match isn't going well.

Estadio Nacional. First-division fútbol matches, featuring the city's handful of local teams, are held in the Estadio Nacional, southeast of the city center in Ñuñoa. Soccer is played year-round, with most matches taking place on weekends. It is also a major concert venue, and its history of use as a detention center during the dictatorship does not prevent its continued popularity. It was declared a national monument in 2003. Av. Grecia 2001, Ñuñoa, Santiago, 7780464. 2/2238–8102.
