MEDELLIN SOCCER MATCH
MEDELLIN HAS TWO TEAMS – A GREAT TIME
Atlético Nacional plays its home games at the Atanasio Girardot stadium, which has a capacity of 45,943. It shares the stadium with its local rivals, Independiente Medellín. The teams face each other in a derby known as El Clásico Paisa, which is considered one of the most important derbies in the country
Deportivo Independiente Medellín, also known as DIM, is a Colombian professional football team, based in Medellín, that currently plays in the Categoría Primera A. They play their home games at the Atanasio Girardot stadium, which is part of the Atanasio Girardot Sports Complex.
One thing I can say from experience is that there is nothing like going to a football match in South America.The passion for football here is second to none. Some people even say it is a religion but last time I checked it was still classified as a sport.
The whole experience was epic. I have never experienced an atmosphere quite like the one in Medellín.
