Argentina to host England in Buenos Aires

Velez Sarsfeld, Buenos Aires
England´s upcoming two test tour of Argentina has been confirmed for a long time but exactly where the tests will be played remains unknown. Four venues had been put forward as candidates for not only the two tests between Argentina and England but also the one-off test against Georgia. The venues were Mar del Plata, Salta, Santa Fé and Tucumán. But these four will not host the three tests. While they may very well host two of the three they will not host all of them as according to Fox Sports the first test, which will take place on June 08 will be played at Velez Sarsfeld in Buenos Aires. The stadium has played host to a number of Pumas tests and was used as the premoninant venue from 2002-2006. 

There are concerns over the English tour due to the recent diplomatic problems concerning the Islas Malvinas, known in English as the Falkland Islands.
