Some football stadiums are far more than sports venues. That is certainly true of Estadio Alberto J. Armando, the home ground of the Argentinian football club Boca Juniors. In 2019, the stadium affectionately called “La Bombonera” or “The Chocolate Box” for its distinctive shape was in need of a new floodlight system for the upcoming 2020 Copa Libertadores and the Copa America, respectively equivalent to the UEFA Champions League and the Europe Cup. Thorn, a member of the Zumtobel Group, was commissioned with the task of showcasing one of the most recognisable football venues in the world.
