Estadio Adolfo López Mateos is a stadium in Reynosa, Mexico. It is primarily used for baseball and serves as the home stadium for the Broncos de Reynosa.[2] From 2007 to 2008 the stadium served as an association football venue for the Tigres B team that later moved to San Nicolás de los Garza in the greater Monterrey area.[3][5] From 2008 on it has been home to the Zorros de Reynosa football club that currently plays in the Segunda División de México.[4] The stadium has a capacity of 7,000 people.[1] It was named after Adolfo López Mateos who served as President of Mexico from 1958 to 1964.[6]

On 12 July 2010 a game between the Broncos and the Monterrey Sultans at Estadio Adolfo López Mateos had to be suspended due to gunfire, possibly in relation to the Mexican Drug War.[7] The game was resecheduled and moved to Monterrey.[7]
