Fans of Boca Juniors celebrating when their team goes out to the field in the derby match against River Plate. This match is called 'Superclásico' in Argentina, and affects the mood of 70% of the country population, because these two clubs represent that percentage of the total supporters in the country. Every match between these two teams brings at least 60.000 people to the stadium.

The National Game is a project that explores the football as a social and cultural phenomenon, lengthwise and crosswise Argentina.
In most of Latin American countries, especially in Brazil and Argentina, soccer is a powerful passion. It unites people from different social strata, genres, cultural backgrounds in a rank that goes from men and women who suffer poverty since birth to people from the middle and upper classes.
In Argentina particularly, soccer works as a social equalizer. And that means that if two guys have hugh differences between each other, as religion, origin or whatever, when playing football these differences are deleted, and they are bonded by this unique moment. In a country with huge social differences, football works as a very important factor of union between people who, otherwise, had never been united.

Boys playing in a slum, men in a private neighborhood, girls facing a final match, guys gathered in a rural area, crowds celebrating in a derby match, blind people feeling the game more than anyone; all these situation are bonded by the strong passion for football in Maradona’s and Messi’s land.
