Mexico City. While the world has its eyes set on Qatar 2022, in Mexico some millions have their eyes and passion pointing to another horizon. The president of the 49’s, Al Guido, anticipated that for the inhabitants of this country tonight’s game at the Azteca stadium -where 78,000 attendees saw how San Francisco defeated the Arizona Cardinals 38-10- would experience something similar. to a Super Bowl. If a World Cup happens in other latitudes, something happens here that the fans consider more important.
Mexico is the most important market in the league after the United States, with some forty million fans, according to the NFL itself, with those numbers success was assured and the Azteca looked overflowing.
Legions of fans have arrived for days to witness the return of the greatest American football spectacle to these lands, suspended in two editions due to the covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021. In addition, this was a new version of the first regular season game that there was in Mexico, with the 49’s against the Cardenales in 2005.
On the stadium esplanade, San Francisco fans demonstrated that it was worth the years of waiting to have the team they follow again, most of them since the 1990s. It was evident that they are a nation here and their predominance made evident the almost non-existent presence of fans from Arizona.
All of the Azteca was from San Francisco. Fans relished the precision of quarterback Jimmy Garoppo and the speed of the offense that crushed a 38-10 Cardinals who failed to get into the fight.
In the fourth quarter, Kittle’s speed and Garoppolo’s accuracy combined for 32 yards to build to an unreachable 38-10. The Mexican 49ers crowd waited decades to see their team, but time was theirs.
