The Estadio Padre Ernesto Martearena was built in 2001 ahead of Argentina hosting the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship (now known as the FIFA U-20 World Cup). The stadium would host several matches in the Championship, before hosting two group matches for the 2011 Copa América.
The stadium is now home to two local Third Division football sides, Juventud Antoniana and Central Norte and continues to be used for summer pre-season tournaments and recently the Copa Argentina.
Tenants: Juventud Antoniana & Central Norte (Football)
