Estadio Libertadores de AméricaEdit profile
The Estadio Libertadores de América is a stadium located in Avellaneda, Buenos Aires Province. It is home to the Argentine football club Independiente. The stadium was officially named only as recently as 2005, having been previously known simply as Estadio de Independiente or La Doble Visera de Cemento ("The double cement visor") because of the roofs overhanging the spectators.
The stadium, built in 1928, holds 52,823 with 27,863 seats. Its address is Almirante Cordero 751/83. La Doble Visera is the fourth biggest stadium in Argentina, and the first cement stadium to be constructed in South America.Reconstruction
In December 2006 the stadium was closed for major renovations. The reconstructed stadium was inaugurated on October 28, 2009, in a match against Colón de Santa Fe of the Argentine First Division championship (Apertura 2009).
The new European style stadium has a capacity of roughly 46,000 seats. It also features large digital screens, a restaurant with panoramic view of the pitch, a club museum, offices and conference facilities, and a shopping centre.
