The Jalisco Stadium is a football stadium located in Guadalajara, Mexico. It is the third largest Mexican football stadium behind Estadio Azteca and Estadio Olímpico Universitario. The facility is located in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, 400 kilometers north-west of Mexico City, and has a maximum capacity of 53,985 spectators.
Estadio Jalisco was the home ground of Guadalajara, one of the oldest football teams in Mexico, until 2010. It remains the home stadium of Club Atlas in the Liga MX and Club Universidad de Guadalajara in the Ascenso MX. Several football preliminary matches took place for the 1968 Summer Olympics. The stadium has hosted the FIFA World Cup tournaments: (1970) and (1986).
During both of those tourneys the Estadio Jalisco was the temporary home of the Brazilian national team and today remains a liaison between the people of Guadalajara and the Brazilian national team. The stadium is centrally located in the heart of the neighbourhood called Colonia Independencia, and is in front of the Plaza de Toros Nuevo Progreso ("New Progress" Bullring).
After 50 years, Guadalajara moved to the Estadio Omnilife in 2010.
