This sport facility is used mostly for football (soccer) games. It is the home of the team Querétaro FC. This stadium hosted the Football World Cup 1986.

Built in 1985 in a German and Mexican collaboration, it is considered one of the most beautiful stadiums in Mexico and one with the best designs allowing the stadium to be from completely full to completely empty in less than 7 minutes.

It one of the largest football venues in Mexico, after the Estadio Azteca, the Estadio OlĂ­mpico Universitario (both in Mexico City) and Estadio Jalisco in Guadalajara.
