What kind of reception would a British football fan get visiting Argentinian football stadiums?

Looks a cracking atmosphere at most of the games.

With a bit of common sense it wouldn't be a problem.

The biggest problem is getting tickets (if you want to go to bigger games) and going to certain stadiums - San Lorenzo's stadium is on the edge of a slum and can be a bit dodgy (even for locals).

My mate said his brother went to a San Lorenzo game with his girlfriend when travelling South America and they were welcomed with open arms . He was being bought beers from them.

He has a history of being a bullshitter and likes San Lorenzo fans from seeing videos on YouTube.

Would love to take in a big game in Argentina, could spend hours watching YouTube clips of the fans, especially San Lorenzo.
quite often Boca v River is shown live on YouTube, hopefully the case next week.

I have no doubt he was treated brilliantly in and outside the ground.

As i said, you just need to be a bit streetwise. Due to their locations, in or next to areas of terrible poverty there is a lot of crime (usually involving guns), so you would just have to be a bit careful - same goes for the locals. The players at a SL home game have even been robbed.

Don't let this put you off. The same can be said when you go anywhere new.

What's the best way to go about getting tickets for Boca?

Couple of us going to Buenos Aires in April looking to take in a game.

For Boca and River you'll have to buy a 'tourist' ticket. You'll be able to do this through companies you find online or through your hotel etc........ These tickets are more expensive because every game is sold out to s/t holders so this is the only way.

I don't know if the thread is still there, but a poster on the old forum said he had a contact for getting tickets. If you have a look (if the search function is still working) then you may be able to get the name of the poster and contact him on here.

Nowhere near the same thing but you could always try some of the other clubs if you can't get tickets for a Boca game. If you get tourist tickets for Argentinos Juniors they'll give you a tour of the museum and they used to let you on the pitch after the match (don't know if this is still the case).

There are loads of teams in BA so plenty of oppertunities.
