Club de Futbol Monterrey Stadium
The metropolitan area of Monterrey is set at the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range in the state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Its most famous mountain, Cerro de la Silla, is the future backdrop for over 50,000 Monterrey Rayados soccer fans. The form of the stadium responds to the viewof the Mountain with the 3 upper seating tiers dramatically dipping towards the south to frame spectator views of the Cerro de la Silla. The stadium’s naturally-finished materials of metal and concrete pay homage to the city’s illustrious industrial history, and seek to further strengthen the relationship between Monterrey and their Rayados.
The stadium is designed to be a world-class stadium, meeting international FIFA standards. The seating bowl is designed to have the most ‘intense atmosphere’ in any Latin American Stadium, with spectators located as close to the pitch as possible with excellent views of the event. A vast 55 meter cantilevered roof covers all spectators, providing an unsurpassed level of spectator comfort.
The Estadio de Futbol Moneterrey will be a world class stadium that Rayados fans and the people of Monterrey will call their own.
