Estadio Ciudad de Mendoza

Estadio Ciudad de Mendoza

Estadio Ciudad de Mendoza was built specifically in response to Argentina being selected to host World Cup 1978. It hosted six World Cup matches, three first round matches and three more in the second round.

In 1982, as a result of the Falklands Conflict between Britain and Argentina, the stadium was renamed Estadio Malvinas Argentinas.
