Bolivia National Football Team schedule
Get your tickets now to watch Bolivia's National football team play against their South American rivals in the Copa America or in many other international football matches! Perpetually relegated to underdog status on the South American continent which is filled with many of the world's best national teams, Bolivia is a team to keep an eye on. Bolivia's greatest accomplishment was winning the Copa America in 1963, and finishing as runner-ups in the tournament they hosted in 1997. Buy Bolivia National Football Team tickets and see if the side, led by Venezuelan manager César Farías, can start to challenge their neighbours and rivals to become one of South America's top football sides. Bolivia play their football matches at the Estadio Hernando Siles which is, at 3,637 metres above sea level, one of the world's highest professional stadiums. This attitude has caused controversy as other teams feel that it gives the Bolivia National Football Team an unfair advantage over other teams who have little time to acclimatise. Some of Bolivia's most famous victories have come at this stadium, none more so perhaps than their 6-1 victory over Lionel Messi's Argentina.
Bolivia National Football Team history and results
Despite being one of the 'smaller' national teams from South America, Bolivia, also known as La Verde or Los Altiplanos (a reference to their Andean mountain home), have been competing on the international stage since 1926. The team competed in the very first Football World Cup, held in Uruguay in 1930, however, they didn't make it out of the Group Stages after losing to Brazil and Yugoslavia. The Bolivia National Football Team has made two further Football World Cup appearances, in 1950 and 1994. 1994, in the USA, saw Bolivia's best-ever result at the Football World Cup finals as they held South Korea to a goalless draw.
Bolivia has also competed in several Copa America tournaments. Hosting the tournament twice, Bolivia National Football Team won the 1963 Copa America on home soil, having gone through the entire tournament undefeated. Then, in 1997, Bolivia once again hosted the South American football tournament, just losing out to Brazil in the final in La Paz. Can the side from the Andean country win a second Copa America, or once again compete in the Football World Cup? Well, get Bolivia football tickets and see the side play at the Andean fortress in La Paz, the Hernando Siles Stadium (located at over 3600 meters above sea level), or the tropical Ramón Tahuichi Aguilera Stadium in Santa Cruz de la Sierra.
