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.

  • 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. It was the home of Mexican football club Cruz Azul until 2018; it has been also home for Atlante F.C. (hence the nickname Estadio Azulgrana) 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. A peculiarity of this stadium is that it is built as a pit; the playing field is below street level. Another oddity is that just beside the stadium is the Plaza México, the world's largest bullring. * Stadium * Seen from a side street * Estadio Azul from the air * View inside the Estadio Azul * Stadium viewed from the east in the Preferences section A (en)
