Foro Sol (English: Sol Forum) is a sports and concert venue built in 1993 inside the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in eastern Mexico City. It is located near the Mexico City International Airport and is operated by Grupo CIE.For Foro Sol and beyond, use our Mexico City driving holiday planning tool to get the most from your Mexico City vacation.
The venue was originally built for staging large music concerts. Initially called the Autódromo, it could accommodate up to 50,000 people. Since 2000, it has been used as a baseball stadium as well, because the only other major baseball stadium in Mexico City (Parque del Seguro Social, formerly Parque Delta) was demolished to build a shopping mall (the shopping mall is named Parque Delta and features a baseball theme). Foro Sol is the second largest concert venue in Mexico City; the largest, Estadio Azteca, has a capacity of 105,064.
Its name comes from a popular beer brand of the Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma group.
It was home to the Diablos Rojos del México, a Mexican Baseball League team, and hosted Pool B of the 2009 World Baseball Classic March 8–12, 2009.
Madonna was the first world-class act to perform at the Foro Sol on 12 November 1993, when it was called Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez for her first visit to Mexico in the Girlie Show tour on 10, 12 and 13 November 1993.
Since 2015 for the Mexican Grand Prix and 2016 for the Mexico City ePrix, the venue has become part of the track and has turns within the venue. It also increased the Circuit capacity by 25,000 spectators. Fans and F1 Pilots alike praise the uniqueness of the venue and became a big part of Mexico's success with its return to the F1 Calendar.
In 2019, the park hosted the Race of Champions and Stadium Super Trucks series; the latter served as both a competing ROC category and standalone event to conclude its 2018 season.

great venue for atmosphere, sound acoustics, space, organization. A few things to note, at least in the winter (evening of March 2020): bring along a blanket...to sit on, as it is hard concrete... more »

Excellent place for a concert! I was in U2 and Bruno Mars concert. Bruno Mars is a great performance artist. I also went to see U2 on 2017 when they held the Joshua Tree concert for the 30 anniversary. That was a great concert. When there is a concert in this place the organization is exceptional from start to end on any concert.
I have sat at both the baseball stadium and Turns 1 to 3 at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. Baseball stadium is great, Zona Cafe is better than Zona Gris. The grandstand closest to Turn 1 is the best, but all 3 are very good. 2019 getting tickets back in the baseball stadium, but on the other side in Zona Cafe. You can see the podium and after concert from the stadium, no where else.
