The logo depicts a perspective view of the Arena Ciudad de México building, located near the station. It was changed in November 29, 2012. The previous station logo depicted the head of a cow. This was a reference to a cattle ranch that existed nearby, known as Ferrería; there was also a train station that serviced this ranch.
Metro Ferrería/Arena Ciudad de México runs under Avenida Antigua Calzada de Guadalupe and serves the Colonia Santa Catarina neighbourhood. The station was opened on 21 December 1983.
