TO THE candy box There is a lack of places to get more fans in Mouth. On the basis of this certainty, various projects have proliferated in recent years and have become known in the form of models: the one proposing the transfer to Demarchi Island or the expansions of the Slovenian Project or the Bombonera 360, among the most recent.
The latest model corresponds to the launch project of Andres Ibarra as an opposition candidate to the current administration of which he is president Jorge Amor Ameal Already Juan Roman Riquelme as a vice, but also as a football reference.
Ibarra’s proposal to solve the problem that the capacity does not include the current Bombonera, even if it will not be demolished: they contemplate it to host a sort of fanfest on matchdays for excluded players and also for youth categories and the first women’s team to play at home.
The symbolic idea is, moreover, that whenever Boca is local they play two full stadiumsgiven that in the old Bombonera you can see on the screens the match played just over 200 meters away, where Casa Amarilla is today.
Both stadiums will be connected by a planned bridge which, like the construction of the new one, bears the signatures of architects Antonio Ledesma and Lucia Mazzaglia, as well as those of civil engineers Gerardo and Iván Adaro. The preliminary project preserves for the stands “a cut of stairs” identical to the Bombonera “which will guarantee the same acoustics and heartbeat”, assured Ibarra in the presentation.
How do the new Bombonera think
The project contemplates a stadium with a capacity of 105,369 spectatorsdistributed in 52,481 stalls, popular grandstands for 49,673 people and boxes, with capacity for four and eight occupants, for a total of 3,484 fans.
It will be equipped with 12 giant screens with 8K resolution and gastronomy areas for all spectators, regardless of their location, as well as commercial spaces for the purchase of merchandising and other items.
It will have 22 entrances and parking for 5,000 vehicles. The dimensions of the stadium are majestic: 180 x 280 x 55 meters, even if the space of the playing field will be exactly the same as the current one: 105 meters long by 70 meters wide.
It features 20 TV and radio broadcast booths and the promise of next-generation Wi-Fi. The cost of this stadium billed as the “World Cup” will be an “approximate cost” of $390 million.
This amount will be financed with various instruments, including pre-sale of boxes, season tickets and stalls, as well as parking space, for periods of five to six years. Another of the revenues will come from the commercial name it will have: a brand associated with the club during the term of a contract. The rest of the commercial agreements are also accounted for as proceeds for the construction phase.
When will it be ready?
For that to happen, Ibarra must first win the election at Boca and become the new president. While there is no set date for the election, it is estimated that it will be held in December. In addition to Ibarra there will be other candidates: the current vice president has launched his own group with the aim of presenting himself and Mario Pergolini, who was part of the government party, has announced that he will also participate.
If Ibarra wins, then, he must present the documentation to the City offices and wait for the approval of the urban reorganization to be discussed in the Legislature, given that the project provides for the disappearance of some streets in the neighborhood.
This process takes about eight months, according to the candidate’s estimation. Once this step is completed, construction will take three years. In this way, if the series of detailed events were concatenated, the new Bombonera would be ready for the end of Ibarra’s hypothetical mandate.
Meanwhile, Boca will continue to play everywhere. Because the players, the presidents, the models pass and the Bombonera remains.
