The Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium – venue for the World Athletics U20 Championships Cali 22 – has witnessed countless national and international sporting events since 20 July 1937, when it was inaugurated following the donation of land from poet Pascual Guerrero. Since its initial construction, it has undergone major renovations that have made it one of the most complete and modern sports centres in Latin America, which is why the term 'Sports Capital of America' was coined for the city. 

Its facilities are an important factor to highlight, since the athletics track of the Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium was rated within the highest category, with the quality of its track and facilities suitable for world-class competitions. 


Today, the Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium has a modern appearance and has a capacity of 38,000. It has hosted events such as the Pan American Games, Copa America, FIFA U-20 World Cup, World Games and World Athletics U18 Championships, and is the venue for Colombian professional football matches.



On the other hand, the Pedro Grajales Athletics Stadium, with its jumping and throwing areas as well as its modern track, make it one of the favoured training centres for countless athletes.



Undoubtedly, these settings – accompanied by an excellent professional team – will make the World Athletics U20 Championships Cali 22 one of the greatest ever experienced in history.
