Extra stadium info – Estadio Mâs Monumental
The construction of the stadium started in 1936. It became a venue for several events, like athletics, concerts, football, rallying and rugby union. The Estadio Mâs Monumental, which used to have an athletics track, became the second Argentine venue with an attendance above 50,000 for a rugby union match. The stadium was named after Antonio Vespucio Liberti. The former Italian chairman of River Plate was born in 1902. Under his mandate, the Estadio Mâs Monumental was built. The venue hosted the 1978 FIFA World Cup final between the national football teams of the Argentine Republic and the Netherlands. The Argentines won the game after defeating the Netherlands 3-1 in front of 71,000 spectators.
The stadium’s record attendance of 100,000 was set in 1975, when River Plate played a game against Racing Club.
