Club América play their home games at Aztec Stadium, the largest stadium in Mexico and Latin America and the third-largest football association-only stadium in the world. The Aztec Stadium was built in the 1960s and served as Mexico's flagship venue for the 1970 World Cup.
It took 4 years to build Aztec Stadium after the architect Pedro Ramírez Vázquez’s careful study of the most famous European stadium of the time. During the 1970 World Cup, it hosted a total of 10 matches, including the semi-finals and the final between Brazil and Italy (4-1). Besides, the World Cup finals were held here in 1986 and 2014, and it is the only stadium that has hosted two World Cup finals.
Speaking of safety measures, the capacity was restored from 115,000 in 1986 to about 100,000 in the 2000s. In 2016, the stadium also underwent extensive renovations, adding VIP facilities and reducing the capacity to 84,000 seats.
The stadium is also a regular venue for the Mexican national team and was home to Necaxa for many years before they moved to Agua Calientes.
