Mexico City's Estadio Azteca- host of tonight's important USMNT World Cup qualifier vs. Mexico- was built in the 1960s to host Club América and the 1970 World Cup. It has outlasted many American stadiums built in the same decade; in Major League Baseball, only Dodger Stadium and Oakland Alameda County Coliseum are still in service from the 60s (notwithstanding, of course, Fenway and Wrigley.) But Azteca is much more on the scale of large college stadia, such as Michigan's Big House (capacity: 109k) and Ohio State's Horseshoe (102k). With American reporters on the ground reporting that seat renovations seem to have reduced Azteca's capacity, it is still listed as a 104,000 seat stadium, putting it in the good company of 6 U.S. college stadia (Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee, Ohio State, Alabama and Texas) that seat over 100k.
It may be tough to find as many US Nike kits in the stands tonight, but FCearth still optimistically projects:
