Myself and a couple mates from England are interested in going to BA to watch Boca Juniors play River Plate. Is this something that is possible.. ie is there any chance of obtaining tickets and is it safe?! Also, does anone know if there are organised tours from UK that go to this game.

We would be looking to spend about 7 -10 days in Argentina around this match... so any other advice would be grately appreciated

Boca won't play River anymore this season; last game was 4/15. The schedule for next season has not yet been made public.

Have you any idea when the fixture lists will go up for 07/08 season?

I would also be interested in this and the same for the Brazilian league.

Boca-River games are classical it´s mean very... very popular... tickets run out fast and get high prices.
For turist I will not recommend to go go by your ownself.
Hotel offer package for those days and I considere is the Best and safe way to go.
There is a company at town: TANGOL they offer also this service.

most of the hostels offer tickets and transport and some have guides. maybe around 150 pesos for good seats. overpriced but worth it for the experence.
