San Lorenzo de Almagro History
Estadio Pedro Bidegain, more commonly referred to as Nuevo Gasómetro, is the venue for all of San Lorenzo’s home games. The Bajo Flores neighborhood of Buenos Aires is home to both the stadium and the other sporting facilities in the city. The club’s old home pitch was in the neighborhood of Boedo, and it was known as the Viejo Gasómetro. The de facto government of Argentina nationalized the Gasómetro in 1979 and subsequently sold it to the supermarket company Carrefour.
At the moment, the club has a total of six headquarters; three of them are located in Boedo, while the other three are located in Monserrat, Bajo Flores, and in villa Gesell. In addition, San Lorenzo intends to enlarge its main seat on La Plata Avenue, and a 15-hectare campus in Ezeiza is expected to become home to an Olympic football program in the near future.
San Lorenzo’s historical opponent is Huracán, located in Parque Patricios. One of the more traditional Argentine derbies is played between these two clubs. In addition to being one of the most unequal derbies in Argentine football, this matchup is considered by some fans to be the third-most important after the Superclasico and the Clasico de Avellaneda.
Club San Lorenzo plays its home games at the Estadio Pedro Bidegain, more commonly referred to as El Nuevo Gasómetro. This stadium can be found in the Bajo Flores district of Buenos Aires city.
This stadium is the replacement to San Lorenzo’s previous field, which was the historic Viejo Gasómetro in nearby Boedo. The Viejo Gasómetro had been inaugurated in 1916, but the military government expropriated it in 1979. Approximately 48,000 people can be seated at a time in Estadio Pedro Bidegain.
