Some of world’s most iconic soccer moments have taken place at Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca. It was on that pitch, ringed with 110,000 fans, that Pelé led Brazil to a World Cup victory in 1970; it was there that Maradona punched his famous goal, which became forever known as La Mano de Dios. But Estadio Azteca also has a special place in the other football’s history: ten years ago, it hosted the NFL’S first-ever regular-season game outside of the United States – a match that broke attendance records at the time. “It was a really unforgettable experience,” Mexican sports writer Ivis Aburto told the Bleacher Report, recounting how the stadium filled to capacity three hours before kickoff.
In the ten years since that historic match, Mexico’s appetite for American football has only grown; a recent study from Global Web Index found that Mexico has more NFL fans than any country outside of the United States. And when the NFL announced it would finally be heading back to Mexico City on November 21st with the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans, the tickets sold out within minutes.
Luckily for you, even if you didn’t score a ticket there’s still a way to get into this mega-coveted game.
