Mexico City MNF Tickets Sold Out in Under 30 Minutes

August 2, 2016

In 2005, the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers played the first-ever regular season game outside the United States at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, setting an NFL record attendance of 103,467.

Mexico City - The NFL says the November 21 Monday night game in Mexico City between the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans sold out within minutes.

A league statement said tickets went on sale at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 28th and were gone in under a half-hour.

Mexico is one of the few countries outside of the U.S. with a large fan base for the sport that folks here call "American football." National Football League officials have said it's their biggest foreign market.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the statement that the rapid sellout "further confirms what a passionate fan base we have in Mexico."

The game at the cavernous Azteca stadium will mark the league's return to Mexico for the first time since the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals came in 2005.
