See National Football League action on the international level with NFL Mexico tickets from TicketSmarter. The very first NFL Mexico game was held between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers in 2005. After international games were exclusively limited to stadiums in England, the NFL returned to an annual Mexico game in 2016. Since 2016, the NFL has hosted annual games at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, Mexico. The Oakland Raiders defeated the Houston Texans in front of nearly 77,000 fans. The originally scheduled 2018 contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams was postponed due to poor field conditions. The game was eventually rescheduled outside of Mexico.
The annual NFL Mexico game is a part of the NFL International Series. At least two games are held in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London each year. It’s the modern means by which the NFL promotes the game abroad. The outreach has existed in a variety of forms. The American Bowl, which was a set of preseason games played in international locations, ran from 1986 to 2005. Similarly, the NFL ran a development league known as NFL Europe from 1991 to 2007.
NFL Mexico tickets bring fans to matches that include at least one AFC West team. AFC West teams such as the Las Vegas Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, and Los Angeles Chargers have all participated in the Mexico City game. During the very first NFL Mexico game (which was dubbed “NFL Futbol Americano), a total of 103,467 spectators filled Estadio Azteca. At the time, this was the NFL-record for the highest game attendance.
Since there is only one game held in Mexico City each year, tickets will be in high demand. The stadium always sells out which causes NFL Mexico ticket prices to increase. Games that feature high-flying opponents will considerably increase the already high demand.
NFL Mexico tickets will range from around $50 to $325. Prices will increase as seats get closer to the field. Seats behind the goalposts will tend to be cheaper than seats that are at the fifty-yard line.
The annual game in Mexico City is usually featured on Monday Night Football. The third week in November has been the set date for the game each year. After the eleven-year hiatus from 2005 to 2016, the return to Mexico game featured the Houston Texans taking on the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders defeated the Texans 27-20. During the following season, the highly anticipated match between the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders ended in a rout in favor of the Pats. While the Raiders may be the fan-favorite in Mexico, the Kansas City Chiefs made an impact during the 2019 campaign. On route to their eventual Super Bowl victory, the Chiefs defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 24 to 17.
Around the first week of August, an announcement will go out letting fans know that tickets will go on sale. Tickets are usually available for purchase in mid-August for NFL Mexico games that take place in November. NFL fans never need a presale code to purchase their tickets from TicketSmarter.
Every year, the NFL Mexico game welcomes more than 75,000 fans in Estadio Azteca. The famous stadium has welcomed multiple FIFA World Cup Finals and is home to Mexico’s National Soccer team. Seven different seating sections surround the field. The 600 through 300 sections are in the upper bowl, while the 200 and 100 sections are in the lower bowl. Cheap NFL Mexico tickets can be found behind the end-zones. See a map of Estadio Azteca with TicketSmarter’s unique seating chart.
