About River Plate

River Plate or “Río de la Plata” is the South American river and estuary on the border between Uruguay and Argentina. In RPP’s context, it refers to the culture of the capital cities on the shores of the river, Montevideo and Buenos Aires. The passion, skill and creativity of their people expressed through football, music and arts are sources of inspiration.
