Architect Pedro Ramirez Vazquez, who was in charge of building the Azteca Stadium, could never have imagined the passion of the football soccer fans it hosts today. To plan and execute its complex architecture was not an easy task for the architect, since the area chosen for its construction was covered by volcanic rock left by the eruption of the Xitle volcano.
In order for today’s fans to celebrate each game held there, 180 million kilograms of rock had to be removed and ten architects, thirty four engineers, fifteen technicians and eight hundred workers of all specialties and categories participated in its construction.
As the flagship sport that football soccer has become, Mexicans have been recognized as the most fans who come to a stadium, as it includes 10 of the 100 soccer clubs that bring the largest number of fans to the stadiums, of which the first is the America Club, whose home is the Azteca Stadium, and which manages to attract a crowd of up to 53,750 fans per game. Discover the bowels of this stadium thanks to the k-tering team, who organize guided tours for you, your family, friends and co-workers, through the locker rooms, the field, the museum and the tunnels through which the players finally have a peaceful space before going out on the field and give everything in exchange for a goal for their team.
Put on the t-shirt of the team of your choice and participate in the chants and cheers to encourage them to score a goal, while the ball goes from one foot to another, along the 344 feet making up the field. Feel how the floor begins to vibrate, raise your hands and stand up when you see everyone else doing it, now you have become part of the traditional Mexican wave.
