Metro Ciudad Deportiva (Spanish: Estación Ciudad Deportiva) is a metro station along Line 9 of the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is named for the nearby the Magdalena Mixhuca Sports City.

Magdalena Mixuhca Sports City was enlarged in 1967 as part of the project to create the venues needed for the 1968 Summer Olympics.[3] The Sports City is home to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez (racetrack), the Foro Sol (baseball stadium and concert venue),[4][5] the Agustín Melgar Olympic Velodrome, and the Palacio de los Deportes (indoor arena).[3]

The station is elevated and sits in the median of the Viaducto Río Piedad. It was opened 26 August 1987.[6] The logo for the station represents a player engaged in a Mesoamerican ballgame (a similar logo is used for Metro Deportivo 18 de Marzo on lines 3 and 6).[1]

In December 2009 a man in his 30s was shot twice in the back at the station.[7]
