Estadio Víctor Agustín Ugarte, also known by its old name Estadio Mario Mercado Vaca Guzmán,[1] is a multi-purpose stadium in Potosí, Bolivia. At an altitude of 3960 m above sea level, it is one of the world's highest situated stadiums.[2] It is currently used mostly for football matches, on club level by Club Bamin Real Potosí. The stadium has a capacity of 32,000 people.[3] The stadium was originally called Estadio San Clemente,[4] but was renamed Mario Mercado Vaca Guzmán after some modifications on the structure, including new illumination towers, were made. Newer modifications led ultimately to its actual name.
