The Estadio Presidente Juan Domingo Perón is a multi-use stadium in Córdoba, Argentina. It is currently used primarily for football matches. The stadium has a capacity of 26,535 of which 13,000 are seated and was opened in 1951. It is named after the former Argentine president Juan Perón who loaned the club $1.5 million Pesos during the late 1940s to help build the stadium. The debt was then written off by Arturo Frondizi in 1959. Before the death of Perón in 1974 the stadium was named El Estadio Monumental de Alta Córdoba.

Is the home for the Argentine team Instituto Atlético Central Córdoba [3]
