The Estadio Azul is a 33,000-seat stadium located in Mexico City. This sports facility is currently used for association football matches and previously (until 1990) for American football. The Tazón México has been played at the stadium. It was the home of Mexican football club Cruz Azul until 2018, and also has been home for Atlante F.C. (hence the nickname Estadio Azulgrana) and the Mexico national football team, especially in the early 1990s. In summer 2016, it was announced by Mexico City authorities that plans to demolish the stadium would begin at the end of the 2017-2018 Liga MX season. However, in July 2018, the demolition project was put on hold and the stadium will temporarily host college sports. Demolition plans may resurface in 2020.Find out how to plan Mexico City trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
Both times that Mexico hosted the World Cup, Estadio Azul did not host any games mainly due to the age of the structure, bad parking facilities, and complex traffic patterns.
A peculiarity of this stadium is that it is built as a pit with the playing field is below street level. Just beside the stadium is the Plaza México, the world's largest bullring.
