Monday Night Football in Mexico with demand to satisfy

In figures for 2022, in Mexico there are about 48 million fans of American football, who may have felt frustrated when trying to buy tickets for the game of monday night football between the San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals in the Aztec stadium next November 21.

The United States Ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar released that number of fans last July, while the NFL has indicated that Mexico is the second country in the world with the most fans, with more than 40 million followers.

The pre-sale began on August 16 with red numbers for many fans who complained about erroneous codes, dissatisfaction due to the “exclusive” sale for Banorte cardholders and the sold out of tickets in minutes. However, on August 18 the general sale window opens with official prices ranging from 900 to 5,520 pesos in general admission, and up to 9,000 pesos in hospitality.

The 2022 game will be the second in Mexico of the new three-year agreement. The first was held in 2019 with the victory of the Chiefs over the Chargers (24-17). However, the 2020 and 2021 matches were not held due to the pandemic.

The meeting in Mexico is the fifth international of the NFL confirmed for this year, which adds to the three announced in London, England: Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints, New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers, and Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars.

Also, the Seattle Seahawks will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first official regular season game in Munich, Germany. Even for this game to be held at the Allianz Arena, with a capacity of about 75,000 people, the tickets also sold out quickly. Therefore, resale prices skyrocketed, as confirmed by the Pro Football Talk site.

After 17 years, the San Francisco 49ers will return to Mexico. The team played its first international game in 2005, also at the Azteca, where they fell 31-14 against the Cardinals.

”After a mandatory two-year break (2020 and 2021) we are very excited to return to Mexico on the field of the Azteca Stadium with a regular season game of the NFLwhere we are sure that the fans will accompany us to once again enjoy the experience that a League game represents in our country”, said Arturo Olivé, General Director of NFL Mexico.

According to data collected by this means, the economic impact of gambling in Mexico City has been on the rise since 2016, when the impact was 923 million pesos, in 2017 it rose to 1,121 million and the estimate for 2019 was 1,233 millions. In 2016, a first three-year agreement with the league came into force, however, the poor conditions of the turf in 2018 caused that edition to be canceled without the option of rescheduling.
