8.The Estadio León, unofficially known as Nou Camp, is a mid-sized football stadium with a seating capacity of 31,297 built in 1967, and located in the city of León, Guanajuato, in the Bajío region of central Mexico. This sport facility is used mostly for football matches and is the home of the Club León.

Because of its excellent location and facilities, this stadium hosted matches for both the 1970 FIFA World Cup and the 1986 FIFA World Cup. It also hosted football matches during the 1968 Summer Olympics. During those games, it seated 23,609.[3]

On March 8, 2017, judiciary officials of the city of Leon determined that ownership of Estadio Leon is still in fact property of Zermeño Reyes y Héctor González. It is unknown if negotiations will begin for Grupo Pachuca to purchase the stadium or if Club Leon will relocate after the Clausura 2017 season.[4] One possible alternative was the New Estadio Leon, originally proposed in 2008
