The Estadio Pedro Bidegain (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpeðɾo βiðeˈɣain]), more often known as El Nuevo Gasómetro, is the home stadium of San Lorenzo football club in Buenos Aires.[3]

San Lorenzo's old ground, the historic Viejo Gasometro in nearby Boedo was expropriated by the military government in 1979.[citation needed]

The stadium is located in Bajo Flores but San Lorenzo fans wish to return to their original home (Viejo Gasómetro), and won a court action saying that Carrefour should sell back the land that their supermarket is now built on.[4]
