The Metropolitan Stadium Joaquín de Caycedo y Cuero (in Spanish and officially Estadio Metropolitano Joaquín de Caycedo y Cuero), also named as The San Antonio Colossus, being their most common name The Bears Valley, is the Stadium where plays their home games the team Asociación Farallones de Cali Fútbol Club. The Stadium's owners are the same as the team. The administrator is the company Valle de los Osos S.A., a company formed by a few directives and tenants of the team. The Stadium's name was given in memory of the calian forefather Joaquín de Caycedo y Cuero and is located in the San Antonio neighbourhood, where in the past was located the Santo Tomás de Aquino College.
Due to the need for a venue where the club played their home games, the team's owners bought the Santo Tomás de Aquino College to build the new stadium. On January 11, 2012 the building collapsed and began the adaptation of the field. On 2 February, the construction began, thanks to the Japanese team hired by the directives, the work was completed on 20 March.
The inauguration of the stadium and team debut was preceded by a mega-concert with the participation of the musical groups Avalanch, Angra, Dream Theater, Jose Andrea y Uroboros, Apocalyptica and Slayer with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Valle del Cauca and the Polyphonic Choir of Cali. Then met in a friendly match Farallones and Slagelse Boldklub, in a game to forget.
