Racing600The Estadio Presidente Juan Domingo Perón in South Buenos Aires is home to Argentinian side Racing de Avellaneda. Mostly known as El Cilindro (The Cylinder) because of its uncommon shape, the ground hosted the second leg of the 1967 Intercontinental Cup against Celtic, attended by more than 120,000 fans. Nowadays the capacity is only 66,000, but it was the first Argentinian ground with completely covered stands.
