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 for American football. The Tazón México has been played at the stadium. It was the home of Mexican football club Cruz Azul until 2018; it has been also home for Atlante F.C. and several home matches of 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 will begin at the end of the 2017-2018 Liga MX season. In July 2018 it was announced that the demolition project was to be put on hold and for now will temporarily host college sports for at least two seasons. Demolition plans may resurface some time in 2020.
Both times when Mexico hosted the World Cup, Estadio Azul did not host any games mainly due to the age of the structure, the bad parking facilities and the complex traffic patterns.
