- Boca Juniors is, without a doubt, Argentina's most popular soccer club. And that, in such a soccer-mad country, is not a small feat to accomplish. Inaugurated in 1940, the stadium is nicknamed "La Bombonera" (The chocolate box). The mad roaring of Boca's loyal fans (often including Diego Armando Maradona, arguably one of the greatest soccer players ever) during home games reverberates in such a way that is said to intimidate even the most seasoned opposition. The stadium also houses the Museo de la pasion Boquense, a small museum that celebrates the club's tradition.
