Do you like football?
Then you would probably like to visit the Azteca stadium, one of the biggests in the world, the only place to hold two world cup final matches, and the place were both Pele and Maradona gave some of their best games.
though unknown even to a lot of mexicans it's possible to visit the stadium every day if there is not a game scheduled. The tour lasts about one hour and it consists on four parts, the plaques zone remembering the world cup finals and "the match of the century" between Germany and Italy, the photographs zone, the grandstands and the field, you cannot enter with balls or throphies.
Formerly all you had to do to visit the place was present yourself at gate number 1 but know it is neccesary to make an appointment calling the phone numbers you can check at the official stadium page, the tour can be taken from 10 to 17 on weekdays and from 10 to 14 on weekends.
The aztec stadium is the biggest stadium in Mexico, but it has lost a lot of teams. Some years agos up to five teams played in this stadium so you got at least two matches per week, currently just the Club América has it as it's home. Two teams, Cruz Azul and Pumas moved to other stadiums in the city, other two Necaxa and recently in 2007 the Atlante moved to other cities. Even the Mexico national team wich used to play many of it's matches here is almost never seen know, as, with the intention of making more money, the team plays most of it's matches in the United States.
The América is one of the most popular (and also most hated) teams in my country, it plays it matches on sundays, altought it is a very popular team finding tickets won't be a problem unlees You want to see one of the best matches (against Guadalajara, Pumas or Cruz Azul), the stadium is quite big, there are seats for more than 100,000 people.
If you want to see a game here send me a e-mail and i let you know the matches played while you are visiting Mexico.
Equipment: You are not allowed to enter the stadium with any kind of cameras or objects wich may be used to attack, so you better go as light as possible.
The América fans may be violent so you better don`t mess with them.
