The 2017 Primera league season was supposed to start the first week of February and end the last week in May. The season began March 10th, however, the schedule in its entirety is still being debated. Only international cup and FIFA sanctioned games are locked into place date wise. We certainly hope to see a complete calendar, but in order to avoid any confusion we will not publish and open for the entire 2017 futbol year until an official schedule is published by the AFA. We will continue to open reservations on a week by week basis.
Please Email Us or reserve any of the packages below (we will not process any payment) to be added to the 2017 March to June futbol announcement list to be notified when the schedule, seating and pricing have been confirmed. We will be making announcements and keeping everyone up to date.
