“Coloso del Parque” (Colossus of the Park)

Newell’s Old Boys Stadium: soccer passion in Red and Black in the Independence Park.

Founded in 1903, the "Club Atlético Newell’s Old Boys” was named after Isaac Newell, a remarkable English teacher and a passionate soccer fan. He was 16 when he arrived in Rosario, towards 1869, and after finishing his studies, together with his wife he opened the "Colegio Comercial Anglicano Argentino" (Argentine Anglican Business School), the first secular and multiracial school of Rosario. In 1884, Newell brought from England the first leather soccer ball and the first set of regulations, and it was in his school that the children began to alternate between studying and playing soccer. Due to its location in the heart of the Independence Park, the Club’s stadium is called “El Coloso del Parque” (The Park’s Colossus).
