The Tecnológico Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located at the city of Monterrey, Mexico.

The stadium is part of the facilities of the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education. The CF Monterrey play their home games there, but only rent the space and are not affiliated with the institute. Since 2015 the CF Monterrey leave the stadium, leaving it free, so that at last be free for the university.

The stadium was opened on July 17, 1950 by Mexican president Miguel Alemán Valdés. Originally, it seated 20,000 spectators, but in 1985 it was expanded to 38,000 seats. In the early 1990s executive boxes were added which reduced the capacity to its current figure.

The Estadio Tecnológico was a venue for the 1986 Mexico FIFA World Cup, the highest competition in worldwide professional football.

On February 12, 2006, the Irish rock band U2 opened the 4th leg of its Vertigo Tour at the Estadio Tecnológico, to a crowd of 42,000.
