Address
Neighbourhood: Coyoacán
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.

Great Stadium Tour. You visit all the places youd expect, press area, dressing room, pitch, stand etc. If you like visiting football stadiums youll like this.

Only slight issue was finding the starting point!!! You just go to Gate 2, 2 minutes to the right of the main entrance, and tell the guard on the gate you want to do the tour (there are no signs or reception etc).

I also saw both Club America and Cruz Azul play here!!!

This post is not to review the stadium or the tour but the practicalities.

No visit by any football fan to Mexico City is complete without a tour of the Aztec Stadium / Estadio Azteca.

If you wanted to take a tour but like me you find the one's recommended on the TripAdvisor link fully booked/not available or the £30 group tour, £42 private tour (approx. $39USD, $54USD), with other tour companies charging similar quite expensive, there is a cheaper and easier alternative.

Turn up at the stadium and join a group tour provided by the stadium and not an official tour company. Here you have two options.

#1 $120MEX (£5, $6.40 USD) where you get the history of the stadium, see the press area, players tunnel, home team's changing room and the ground at pitch level and from the stand.

#2 $200MEX (£8.25, $10.60) as above and also a tour of the away team's changing room and a photo opportunity and to sit in the managers / substitutes seats. (I went for option #2).

This tour lasts about an hour. The £30/£42 tours talk about Maradona's Hand of God and "the goal of the century", I can't say if or what other differences there were but my guide was happy to answer any questions I had (in English!)

Note 1: while you don't necessarily need an English speaking guide to look around the stadium, if it's something you do want so they can explain things to you or answer any questions you may have, t may be worth asking at the start.

Note 2: these tours seemed fairly regularly throughout the day, I'm unable to confirm if they are every day, I just turned up at the stadium thinking that there must be more than the main tour companies were offering.

I went to the US-Mexico World Cup Qualifying game. Let me tell you about it:

Most Americans will buy a travel package through official sources and/or supporter groups but I opted to do it myself. The ticket (purchased through US Soccer) was only $15. We met up with some other Americans taking the metro over near Chapultepec Park and took the metro all the way to the end of the line. Mexican fans were on there as well and gave us no problems. We got off here and made our way to the light rail. You have to buy a separate card for the light rail (if going with another person, buy one card and put enough for both of you and then share the card instead of buying separate cards) and you take this to the Azteca stop.

Once we arrived, you follow the crowds of people to the massive stadium that you can't miss and there is a plaza surrounding the stadium of food and merchandise vendors. If you're an American fan wearing American colors, the Mexican fans treat you like a celebrity and you will be asked to pose for lots of pictures. If you bought your ticket through a package, you're most likely taking a bus to the game and you miss out on all this fun. We arrived so early that the Mexican police/riot cops did not want us to take our seats immediately because they wanted to lead all of the US fans in at once but eventually, they did.

We were patted down upon arrival and led to our seats, which were of course surrounded by hundreds of riot cops. The stadium itself sucks, to be honest. But it's so massive and has so much history, it's totally worth crossing off your bucket list if you're a soccer fan. There's not a good scoreboard and you can't really hear/see much from up high. Also, we never ventured out to the concourse so I can't speak much to that. On the way out, the riot cops formed barriers and led us straight out to the parking lot where our tour buses waited. But of course, we took the metro so we had nowhere to go. The cops loaded the few of us up into their riot vans and took us to the nearest metro stop. This was pretty pointless because there were still tons of Mexican fans but we had no problems with them and they were really friendly.

If you go to Azteca for a game in a less hostile environment, then you'd be able to explore the concourses and get a better seat, but taking the metro/light rail is still the best way to get there. Make sure you get there early to experience the plaza outside too.

We went to a game and had a great time. You can buy tickets right at the stadium for $150 pesos each. We had to wait in line for about 40mins to buy the tickets. It's a great experience and a lot of fun.

We went to Estadio Azteca on the weekend of November 18th for the American Football game between the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots on Sunday, November 20th.

Getting to the Stadium:
There were a few options for this. There was public transportation which we only heard good things about. There were organized buses by the NFL from downtown Mexico City and there were also Uber's. We opted for the Uber. Surprisingly, it only took 30 minutes to get there from where we were staying, in Zona Rose, and the traffic wasn't bad at all.

The Stadium:
The stadium is huge and made of concrete. The fans are friendly and LOUD. It's a great atmosphere. It was very easy to navigate and there were a lot of workers there to direct you to your seats. If you don't speak Spanish, it's easy enough to point at your ticket and say "Dondé?" There is also plenty of security. While there wasn't a ton of food options, there were plenty of vendors bringing around Beers and Snacks. If vendors don't walk by you, they are always set up on the walkways in between sections that you can walk over to which is what we did. One drawback is that there isn't much space between seats, so if you have to go to the bathroom, you're leaning on other audience members to get to the stairs. Also, there aren't any railing on the walkways between sections or on the staircases so if you're not paying attention, you could fall so just be careful there. It wasn't a huge deal, though.

Leaving the Stadium:
We left the game early as we thought it was going to be a MAD DASH for Taxis and Public transportation, along with traffic disabling Ubers from getting to you easily. Even leaving early, it was still difficult locking down an Uber. We had to walk quite far up the street to get one that didn't take over 15 minutes to get to us and/or cancel on us.

Overall:
It's safe, the people/workers are friendly and the fans are HILARIOUS -- always doing the wave, chanting and screaming. Getting there is easy enough and it's just an awesome experience. Highly recommend it.

The tour was great with cool facts around the dressing rooms, field, stairs! It's a big stadium where many important actions have taken place! The tour was about 40 minutes long and the entrance cost 105 pesos mexicanos (about $5) per person. You get great pictures and see a glimpse of what it's like to be in the America's locker room. America is a Mexican team, the best haha Indeed it's a pretty cool tour to do!

*Stadium is not up to the standards of modern football/soccer stadiums
*Tiny seats and aisles
*No concessions available in concourse. You have to depend on walking vendors
*You are only allowed in the stadium at the entrance printed on your ticket, which can be very inconvenient

We went to our game VERY early and parking had run out. It is easy to find the entrance area, but not an actual gate to enter. We had digital tickets, and were told we must have a paper ticket. It is 2019! Really!?? Nothing mentioned in any of the stadium rules. The stadium is HUGE! and OLD! Built in 1966 for the Olympics, it shows. The stadium has barbed wire BETWEEN sections! I guess to discourage cheaper seats from getting closer to the field? Never seen that before.
You can purchase almost anything inside the stadium and in the hospitality sections, beer, pizza, jerky, popcorn, noodles, souvenirs, ice cream, and more! Don't eat too much, the seats are smaller than US stadiums!!!
Stay alert as you leave. There were 50 documented robberies after our Monday Night Football game. Stay away from the pedestrian bridge after dark. Our taxi actually took us and waited at the game for us, then took us back to the hotel for around $90.00 US. This arrangement can be made ahead of time with most drivers.
