From June 11 to July 11, 2010 the Government of the City of Buenos Aires presents "Buenos Aires Mundial", a multidisciplinary approach so that all residents and visitors can live the passion of the World Cup taking place in South Africa.

The 64 matches of the World Cup will be transmitted live on two giant screens (10 x 7 meters) with LED technology (from Monday to Sunday, 8am to 6pm.), one will be located in Plaza San Martin (Av. Santa Fe and Maipu) and the other one in the Amphitheater of Parque Centenario (Avenida Lillo and Marechal), for the public to watch all the matches for free.

In Florida street interventions will be presented to form part of the Digital Museum, reviewing the history of the different World Cups since 1930, with a detail of the various locations, figures, and highest scorers.

In addition, at Plaza San Martín an interactive tent of 1200 square meters will be mounted (Monday-Sunday, 10.30am to 7pm), that will feature cultural, educational, and sports activities:
  1. A "Fan Corner" for people to send messages to the national team players, suggest new songs to be sung at the stadiums, and hear the latest news about the national team.
  2. A recreation area for children, which will include a playground, an educational sector so that more kids learn about the countries that dispute the World Cup and a sports field so they can enjoy free time kicking penalties and playing football.
  3. A digital museum with stands from each participating country, which will feature information about geography, languages, religions, customs and other activities. 
  4. A mini stadium, which will feature an indoor giant screen and grandstand for people to experience the World Cup as if they were in the stadium, or as a valid alternative for rainy or very cold days. 
  5. Conference Room to hold discussions between journalists, former players, and anyone who is interested in participating in post-game meetings and getting involved in all the controversy around football.
