Originally built for the World Cup in 1986, the Estadio Azteca is a footballing hotbed like no other and it remains as partisan inside as it was when first built. Mexico national team matches bring the nation together like nothing else and the atmosphere at the Estadio Azteca has to be heard to be believed. Club America and Cruz Azul also ply their trade at the Azteca, and it is as hostile as you would expect for Mexican domestic league matches.
