The Estadio Tecnológico is a multi-purpose stadium located in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.

The stadium is part of the facilities of the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (ITESM). C.F. Monterrey play their home games there, but only rent the space and are not affiliated with the institute. The team is scheduled to move to their new stadium, Estadio BBVA Bancomer in Guadalupe, in August 2015. The college football team for ITESM, Borregos Salvajes, also uses the stadium for their home games.

The stadium was opened on July 17, 1950 by Mexican president Miguel Alemán Valdés. Originally, it seated 20,000 spectators, but in 1985 it was expanded to 38,000 seats for its use in the 1986 Mexico FIFA World Cup. In the early 1990s luxury boxes were added which reduced the capacity to its current figure.

On February 12, 2006, the Irish rock band U2 opened the 4th leg of its Vertigo Tour at the Estadio Tecnológico, to a crowd of 42,000.
