Torneo Apertura 2010: The fixtures in full

The AFA have finally deemed to release the fixtures that were supposed to come out at a civilised hour on Wednesday, and so just as I was about to go to bed, I’ve typed them all up for you. The 2010 Torneo Apertura will begin with champions Argentinos Juniors hosting the team at whose stadium they won the title – Huracán. Also on the first weekend, River Plate are at home to Tigre (as they were for the last weekend of the Clausura) and Boca Juniors visit Godoy Cruz. The new boys? All Boys visit Racing, Quilmes host Colón, and Olimpo are away to Banfield. The whole fixture list is right here.

Fixtures listed in red are the clásicos. As I’m typing very late at night, it’s more than possible I’ve missed one or two, so if you spot one I’ve failed to highlight do let me know in the comments below, and I’ll update accordingly.

As every season, HEGS will have a proper season preview up closer to kick off.

You can follow all things Argentine and footbally during the winter break and beyond into the 2010 Apertura via HEGS on Twitter. If you’ve not signed up yet you can do so here.
