Club Deportivo Cruz Azul Hidalgo, also known as Cruz Azul Hidalgo, is a professional football club in Mexico who last played in the Liga Premier league of Mexico. Their stadium was the Estadio 10 de Diciembre located in Ciudad Cooperativa Cruz Azul (previously name the town of Jasso) in Hidalgo and was the affiliate team of Cruz Azul. The team dissolved in 2014 after Zacatepec 1948 bought their spot to remain in Ascenso MX.[1] But has a team in the Liga Premier de Ascenso, replace Cruz Azul Jasso.


This filial team began participating in the Apertura 2006 tournament at Shoal Zone Second Division, under the name of Cruz Azul Hidalgo. Changed its name to Cruz Azul Jasso due to change of venue of the now defunct Cruz Azul Hidalgo Oaxaca to the entity, who took the name of Cruz Azul Hidalgo. Cruz Azul Jasso was champion of the Second Division in the 2007 Clausura tournament.


The Estadio 10 de Diciembre was created for Cruz Azul until they moved to Mexico City leaving it without a team. Cruz Azul Jasso then started playing there. The stadium can hold 14,500 comfortably and the stands offer some good shade.
