Set for November 21st, the stadium will change its field fútbol to football to host a clash between the Raiders (7-2) and the Texans (6-3), two of the AFC’s top performing teams so far this season.
Nearly 77,000 fans are expected to attend the event, bringing in nearly 22 million dollars in revenue for Mexico City. The game is the first of three apparent games the NFL has agreed to bring to Mexico, however that all depends on how well the November 21st game is received. Mexican Tourism Secretary Enrique de la Madrid explained at a recent press conference, the continued relationship between Mexico and the NFL is “subject to the results of the first [game].” Mexico knows how to show people a good time, and we’re expecting this game to be no different.
