Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario is a multi-use stadium in San Juan, Argentina. It is used mostly for football matches and hosts the homes matches of San Martín de San Juan as well as matches for the 2011 Copa América. The stadium was designed with a capacity of 25,286 spectators and required an investment of 86 million Argentine pesos.[1]

The stadium was supposed to be inaugurated in May, 2010, to commemorate the 200 years of the May Revolution. Delays, however, have meant that the stadium was inaugurated on March 16,[2] 2011 with the Argentina – Venezuela match which Argentina won by a score of 4–1.[2]

The stadium will be one of the two venues of the 2013 South American Youth Championship and will host Group B in the first stage.
