Estadio Azul (literally, Blue Stadium), formerly Estadio Azulgrana and Estadio de la Ciudad de los Deportes, is a 35,000-seat stadium located in Mexico Citymarker. This sports facility is currently used for football matches and previously (until 1990) for American football. It is the home of Mexicanmarker football club Cruz Azul; it has been also home for Atlante F.C. (hence the nickname Estadio Azulgrana) and several home matches of the Mexico national football team, especially in the early 1990s.

Both times when Mexico hosted the World Cup, Estadio Azul did not host any games mainly due to the age of the structure, the bad parking facilities and the complex traffic patterns.

A peculiarity of this stadium is that it is built as a pit; the playing field is below street level. Another oddity is that just beside the stadium is the Plaza Méxicomarker, the world's largest bullring.
