The Estadio de Béisbol Charros de Jalisco is a baseball and athletics stadium located in Zapopan, near Guadalajara, Mexico. It was built for the 2011 Pan American Games at substantial cost.[2][3] It opened in 2011 and received official certification from the International Association of Athletics Federations just days before the start of the Pan American Games.[4] It will have a permanent capacity of 8,000, but will be increased to 15,000 during the games.[3] It has an eight-lane tartan track as well as an adjoining warm-up track.[4]

During the 2011 Pan American Games, it hosted the athletics competition. After the games, it was used as a concert venue and to host sporting competitions including baseball.[5] On September 14, 2014, the Mexican Pacific League's Charros de Jalisco bought the stadium.[citation needed] The stadium hosted Pool D of the first round of the 2017 World Baseball Classic.[6]
