River Plate vs Boca Juniors: Tickets

If watching the Superclasico on a stream isn't enough then you could always try and get tickets for River Plate vs Boca Juniors. Purchasing tickets directly through either club is a complete non-starter due to how big their local fanbases are and you'll need memberships to even have a chance. To get a membership with either club, you'll have to wait years on a waiting list so the best option is to go through a tour operator.

Doing it this way is going to be far from cheap with one operator currently offering a seven-day package which includes tickets to another match in Argentina, a city tour of Buenos Aires and a ticket to the Superclasico for €1.595.

Considering the match is so big, exercise caution when purchasing tickets from any third-party website. There are always ticket scams for these matches so ensure you get verification from the seller and do your research before purchasing a ticket.
