The Estadio Alberto J. Armando (formerly the Estadio Camilo Cichero) is a stadium located in La Boca district of Buenos Aires. Widely known as La Bombonera (Spanish pronunciation: [la βomboˈneɾa]; English: the Chocolate Box) due to its shape, with a "flat" stand on one side of the pitch and three steep stands round the rest of the stadium. It has a capacity of 49,000.

The stadium is owned by Boca Juniors, one of Argentina's top football clubs. The unusual shape of the stadium has led to it having excellent acoustics and the Boca support being nicknamed "La Doce" (The 12th man).

The pitch at La Bombonera is the minimum size required under FIFA regulations - 105m x 68m.

The stadium, as well as being the home of Boca Juniors, is also used as a concert venue. Past performers at La Bombonera have included Lenny Kravitz, Sir Elton John, James Blunt, the Bee Gees, the Backstreet Boys, and Cast having performed there.
