Metro Ferrería/Arena Ciudad de México is a station along Line 6 of the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located in the Azcapotzalco borough, in the north of Mexico City.[1]

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.[1][2] This was a reference to a cattle ranch that existed nearby, known as Ferrería; there was also a train station that serviced this ranch.[1]

Metro Ferrería/Arena Ciudad de México runs under Avenida Antigua Calzada de Guadalupe and serves the Colonia Santa Catarina neighbourhood.[1] The station was opened on 21 December 1983.[3]
