- In Argentina, soccer is more than just a sport; it's practically a national cult. The River Plate stadium, nicknamed "The Monumental", has been the country's' largest stage for sporting events and concerts since its inauguration in 1938. Besides being the home of Club Atletico River Plate, it is used by the Argentinean soccer team, the Pumas (National rugby team) and also to host world-class international artists such as Madonna, U2, and the Rolling Stones. Argentinean fans are extremely passionate, so watching a soccer game can be a colorful experience even if you don't particularly enjoy the game.
